This is based on the Creole dish jambalaya. I change the type of beans I use, depending on what's on hand. You can also spice it up, as desired. Original recipe is from Pillsbury.

Oooh, this was so good! With Cheesy Eggplant Pesto Stacks this made a complete vegetarian meal! I added salt and pepper to taste. Lovely with the fennel seeds. I also added some chopped zucchini and yellow squash because I have alot. Thank you so much. I'm going to take this to birthday fellowship dinner at church Sabbath!
