    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    I found a version of this in reader's digest many years ago. I have since revised it to my own tastes so many times that I no longer even remember what the original recipe was anymore. I love it very spicy so I use extra hot sauce at the table. Tabasco is my preferred brand but Frank's isn't too bad. Just not as spicy but with very good flavor.

      I found this recipe in the Parade Magazine in the newspaper years ago. It's awesome - I haven't found a better Jambalaya recipe yet. I use 1/2 lb ham, and the shrimp. Sometimes we make it without the sausage or with andouille sausage. Also, I use 2 14 oz cans of diced tomatoes instead of one.

      This was very tasty!! I followed the recipe exactly, expect I added a can of black beans. The hubby took the leftovers to work and the guys raved. The only thing I would say, it needed just a bit more kick for my taste buds. Thanks, I will definitely use this one again and again..

      This was great. Apparently I am physically unable to make a recipe as written... I used hot italian sausage, andouille sausage, and shrimp. Added 1 tsp of red pepper flakes, a few shakes of cayenne, and subbed yellow bell pepper for the green. It was very easy to make, and was really tasty. The herbs are perfect. Thanks for another winner, Karen!
