My husband and Father are crazy about this dish. I originally found this on where it was submitted by Nancy. Over time we have modified things a bit to our tastes. If you like hot, please go to town with the seasonings.

Spicy and delicious! I used about 5 skinless/boneless chicken breasts instead of 8 thighs which probably made no difference. Here in the UK I can only get a jar of jalapenos (no such thing as a tin of green chilies on this side of the pond to my knowledge) and I used about 1/2 of the jar. For all the tomato products I had to substitute what is available here as well so I used two cans of chopped tomatoes and a small jar of passata. I left the lid off the crock pot and turned it up to high for about an hour at the end and it thickened up beautifully. I have Tabasco sauce and Tony Chachere's seasoning from back home (I am originally a Louisiana girl) and these spiced it up to perfection. Thanks, Michelle!

Yum! Very easy--I just put the ingredients in in order, and let it sit until it was time to add the sausage and rice. Stirred it up then and mmmm, tasty. I omitted the cubed ham and didn't miss it at all. I used leftover (plain) Chinese food rice, somewhat dried out, and it soaked up all the flavor beautifully.
