This recipe is great for that leftover ham that you have after all the holidays. Makes a little change from the ham salads and ham sandwiches. Give it a try.

A lovely quick and easy recipe. I'll make again but will play around with the toms and broth. It is very ingredient dependent, if that makes any sense. Thanks for posting!

This is a great recipe and such a nice change from sandwiches or salads!!! Thank you so much. But instead of the cajin seasoning I used 1 tsp of Emeril's Bayou Blast seasoning from the Food Network that I always keep made up in my pantry. This is definately a keeper. I also used Hunts stewed tomatoes and I am MSG intollerant and Hunts has zero MSG in their products.

this was a great dinner and a great way to use up some holiday ham! We added some frozen corn and spinach (needed to use up) to the mixture and served the rice separately. thanks for a wonderful dinner!
