Southern Living; very savory and spicy. Love it.

I made quite a few substitutions to this as my British supermarket lacked a few of the ingredients: I used spanish Choritzo sausage, sunflower oil instead of peanut oil, bacon instead of ham, pureed tomatoes instead of cajun style tomatoes and chicken stock instead of chicken broth. But I kept to all the specified quantities (apart from when my dad kept adding extra tabasco behind my back!) I cooked it all in a large wok. It was just the right spiciness and it was very savoury. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and keeps asking me to make it again! Thanks for posting this :)
