Do you have an Instant Pot yet? I’ve been using mine for about a year ,and I like it more each time I use it. Today I am sharing this yummy Instant Pot Jambalaya Soup. It is loaded with chicken, smoked sausage, rice and Cajun/creole seasoning. It is all kinds of delicious! It is also all kinds of easy with the Instant Pot. Just sauté the sausage, dump everything else in the pot and cook. 

I used some spicy Conecuh Sausage in this Instant Pot Jambalaya Soup. It was perfect!!! Conecuh Sausage is made in Alabama. If you can’t get Conecuh Sausage, any brand of smoked sausage will do. You can also use smoked turkey sausage to cut down on the calories. ALSO - make sure to look for salt-free Cajun/creole seasoning. Regular Cajun/creole seasoning can be really salty. You just want to get the Cajun/creole flavor without all that added salt.

We both LOVED this Instant Pot Jambalaya Soup. Chicken Legs has requested this for Mardi Gras next week. I usually serve this with some homemade cornbread sticks. I think I will add some King Cake Bites for dessert this time!

One tip - to avoid getting a burn notice on the Instant Pot, make sure to scrape up all the cooked bits of chicken and sausage from the bottom of the insert. Just pour the chicken broth in the pot and scrape everything off the bottom while the pot is still warm. You will be good to go!

  1. How long would you cook in a crockpot or stovetop?

    1. I'm not sure of exact times. I have only made this as written. My best guess is about 30 minutes on the stove and 6 to 8 hours in the slow cooker

    1. This is a great IP recipe - it definitely takes advantage of the easiness of the IP.

  3. I must tell you that this is my first review of a recipe in all the years I have been searching and trying them. WE LOVE, LOVE this soup. I have made it twice so far. Just as you have given it. Well I take that back. The second time, I added okra, because I had some that needed to be used. The whole time we are eating, my husband states how good it is. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Could you add shrimp at the end when you mix in the chicken?
