1/4 Cup - Garlic Powder
1/4 Cup - Onion Powder
1/4 Cup - Cayenne Pepper

Once done, place in a stainless steel bowl and transfer the jambalaya sauce to the rice. Pour in only about half and save extra jambalaya sauce because the rice will absorb it quickly. When ready to serve, ladle an extra ounce or two of jambalaya sauce on top of your serving. Then sprinkle with green onion. And there you have it, the pie'ce de re'sistance of your cooking experience.

*The word "Jambalaya" is derived from 3 different languages:

Jamba - is a French word for Ham
La - Acadian derivative, idiosyncratic. They say "la" before everything. For example: "la onion", "la sausage", etc.
Ya - is an African word for Rice.
