The Slap Ya Mama Jambalaya dinner mix is so packed with flavor it does not take much more to make a wonderful Cajun meal!

2 cups chicken broth
Slap Ya Mama Cajun Jambalaya Dinner Mix
1/2 dozen Cherrystone clams
1/2 pound Andouille sausage

Bring 2 cups of chicken broth to a boil, add the Jambalaya dinner mix and turn low to simmer. Cover and let it cook until rice is done and tender, about 20 minutes. Rinse the clams well to remove any sand and grit. Steam the clams over boiling water using a steam basket until they open, about 5-10 minutes. Make sure to discard any clams that do not open! The clams should be open fairly wide. Let them cool for a bit until you can handle them. Remove the clams from the shell (keep the shells) and chop. Dice the Andouille sausage and fry in a skillet over medium-high heat until it becomes nicely brown and crispy. Drain the sausage on paper towels. Once the dinner mix is ready, add in the chopped clams and sausage. Mix well to combine. Spoon the mixture into the clam shells and serve.
