Because it's so easy to keep the ingredients on hand, this is a great last-minute dinner.

This was a great recipe! Had most of the ingredients in the cupboard already and added sauted green peppers and onions, a chicken breast that I grilled the same as the shrimp (which was frozen already cooked so I just threw that in last) and cut up some andoulle sausage (Johnstonville makes a great feux one you can find real cheap in the hotdog isle). Also used sticky white rice instead of grits. My family loved it! The sauce IS a little spicy, but we like it that way. You could probably cut the hot sauce in half to help a little.
