Crawfish Pie - this is excellent!! I didn't change a thing except to use skinless chicken thighs, and added a green bell pepper along with the red one. Thick & delicious with great jambalaya flavors! I made this in my 6-quart crockpot, slow simmered all day. My neighbors were forming a line at my back door!! Thanks, CP! - 5 stars!!!

Thank you for sharing, made it with my own additions and subtractions. I am not much for spicy spicy. So we used regular ham. Hot enough for us. We have now made it 3 times. And none is ever left!! Thanks again.

Very nice, I would only do half cup of rice in future or more chicken stock as mine came out _very_ thick.
