It’s officially fall, folks, and I love getting in the kitchen and whipping up some hearty, soul-warming soups! My husband’s personal favorite is this Healthy Jambalaya Recipe. It is packed with 3 tasty proteins – chicken, shrimp, and sausage.

You can choose to make this a tad lighter by subbing out the andouille sausage with some light turkey or chicken sausage, but I’m such a fan of the spicy and flavorful andouille, I’m willing to sacrifice a Point or two for that fantastic flavor.

Each ample serving is certain to fill your stomach and your soul, at just 8 Points. The easy-to-follow recipe will have you wanting to make this jambalaya again and again. Enjoy!
