Yummy Jambalaya

Ohh this is one of my favorites!  SO easy to make and so full of flavor.   I've made it for my fiance, his roommates, and my family and they all loved it so now I am going to share it with you!
Ingredients Needed:
 1 medium onion, chopped
 1 green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound fully cooked/skinless kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
I can of kidney beans (optional)
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning
3 pinches of white flour
3 drops hot pepper sauce (I used Tobasco)
2 bags of Brown Ready Rice

1.   In either a deep skillet or a medium soup pan, saute onion and green pepper in oil until tender. 
2.   Stir in the sausage, tomatoes, water, sugar, all seasonings, flour, and drained beans if using.  You can add more water for more sauce.  Doing that will thin it out so add a few more pinches of flour to thicken it up if you do.  Also add more hot sauce for more spice.
3.   Once it comes to a boil it is finished.  Cook your ready rice by instructions in the microwave.
4.   You can stir in the rice with the jambalaya or serve it separately.  I serve it separately because some like less rice and more of the veggie and meat mixture.

Now all you have to do is enjoy it!  I guarantee it will be a hit even for those picky eaters :) 
 Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  The terrarium I am working on is almost finished and I CANT WAIT to show it to all of you readers because it is looking AWESOME!

We still have to come up with a cool name for our new Chameleon, it will be a boy.  Any suggestions???
