Cooking with Ketchup: 20 minute Jambalya

Mitch got a cookbook last year called Cooking with ketchup. As the name implies, every recipe uses ketchup as a key ingredient. This recipe was simple and flavorful to whip up out of virtually nothing. This recipe was easy, foolproof honestly, and took pretty much no ingredients and time. Plus it was flavorful and tasted like we cooked all day!

  • 1/2 onion, diced

  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
