This is a fantastic recipe I used some Johnsenville Hot and Spicy sausages cut up small then fried, it added a nice flavor through it. I also used cut up prawns and a chicken breast. My husband who is normally fussy about mixing different meats together liked this very much. Will definatly make again.

This was one great meal! I didn't use any ham but instead used spicy italian sausage. It was fabulous. Nice spice and wonderful combo of flavors. I will be making this one again for sure!

This was a great recipe. I did as most cooks do and put my own spin on it. I also used Johnsonville Sausage but chose Mild. Also, I upped the garlic by 6 or 7 as I increased the recipe for a bigger meal/family. I used 2 cups of rice which doubles the water as well. Additionally, I did not use salt and pepper but chose "Old Bay" Seasoning and added 2 tsp. Then I added 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper as the tabasco sauce I used was that of smoke flavor. If you use regular tabasco you may not need the cayenne pepper. Also I used 1 green and 1 yellow pepper. The next time I make it I will probably add Okra!
