  • We love Zatarain's Jambalaya with Cheese, but it is hard to find in Knoxville, TN. Haven't been able to find it in 9 months. Our Kroger quit carrying it. We like to alternate regular and cheesy. They both have unique flavors. We add summer sausage to both.

  • This makes a quick easy dinner. I add 1 pound of sliced turkey smoked sausage and green beans on the side. Very good!

    Unfortunately, we couldn’t locate any stores close to you, Dave, but here’s what we found: Walmart Supercenter in Portsmouth, NH on 2460 Lafayette Rd, Walmart Supercenter in Raynham, MA on 36 Paramount Dr and Walmart Supercenter in Somersworth, NH on 59 Waltons Way. Hope this helps! ~Leslie

  • Hubby loves it, but the only place we've been able to purchase it is at ONE Walmart here in Las Vegas/Henderson... and now they haven't had it in stock for 3 weeks. Is this product going away???

    Looks like several Walmart stores in the Henderson/Las Vegas area have reported selling it recently, Suzie. Walmarts on 540 Marks St and 300 E Lake Mead Pkwy in Henderson and on 1400 S Lamb Blvd and 6570 E Lake Mead Blvd in Las Vegas are some of the stores that are coming up in our product locator. If you need additional locations, please call our Consumer Affairs Team at 1-877-837-3796. ~Leslie

  • By far my favorite of this type of dish. I cut up some kielbasa and sweat it, then add the water and rice mix to it. YUM.

  • This Jambalaya with cheese is a staple in our house. Unfortunately the box we cooked tonight had NO seasoning in the rice package. I'm sure it was just a mistake during production, but we were sad!

  • Big fan of the Jambalaya mixes except this one. Jambalaya is not supposed to have cheese and its tastes awful. Sticky goo!
