“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! ”

  • 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!

  • 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???

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