This One Pot Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya post was created in partnership with Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™. I received complimentary products and compensation to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.
Last summer we visited New Orleans for a friend’s birthday party. It’s been on my bucket list as one of the top places to visit, and was well worth it. Besides alligators and swamp boats, food was a highlight. Southern classics such as shrimp and grits, turtle soup, beignets and of course jambalaya were common dishes there. If you aren’t planning on visiting the region anytime soon, you can still enjoy the culture through this homemade One Pot Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya.
It’s not as intricate as it may seem, especially when made in one-pot for easy cooking and cleanup. This one pot jambalaya uses classic ingredients such as shrimp, chicken sausage, bell pepper, onion, rice and Cajun spices. All common ingredients that are most likely already stocked in your kitchen to create a truly unique recipe, even as a cozy fall weeknight meal.
I used the Ninja® Cooking System with Auto-iQ™. It’s four appliances built into one: a slow cooker, stovetop for searing and sautéing, steamer, and an oven for baking. Auto-iQ™ Technology features more than 80 pre-programmed recipes for a wide-range of easy cooking. Use the included cookbook and just select a recipe number, add ingredients, and let Auto-iQ™ cook for you. Choose from quick meals, layered bowls, poached infusions, and grains.
If you want to create your own recipes you can easily do that as well. The slow cooker function has ACCUTEMP temperature control to ensure your meals don’t boil over and are cooked evenly. You can dry bake roasts or steam bake breads, cakes and more. The stove top function allows you to sear or pre-cook part of your recipe, then add more ingredients to finish with slow cooker or other desired function. Steaming vegetables and lean proteins, or poaching eggs, chicken and seafood is simple as well. Even if you already own a slow cooker, you just may want to replace it with this unique multi cooker.

This gluten-free One Pot Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya is ready in about 30 minutes, required only one pot and uses common ingredients. This all adds up to an easy weeknight family meal and a fun way to enjoy southern-style cooking.
