This was given to me a hundred years ago (well, not quite) by an old boyfriend who got the recipe from his grandmother. My kids love this stuff. You can add more seasoning or hot sauce if you like! Throw in some cornbread and you have a one-dish meal.

This dish hit the spot on a chilly rainy evening! We really liked the two-meat combo. After everything was ready for the final simmer stage, I used chicken stock instead of water just for the opportunity to add some more great flavor. I almost missed adding the bell pepper as it is missing on the ingredient list, but is mentioned in the directions. We used our cornbread to "sop up" some of the broth...YUM!! On a personal note...thanks for introducing me to Tony Cachere!! He is my new best friend in my spice collection! Thanks for this great recipe! :)
