Ham Jambalaya

Ham Jambalaya created by Lori Mama

A simple one-pot Cajun dish using leftover ham. I usually add more spices to this as we like it spicier, but this version works well with kids and those that don't like it as spicy.

    Yummy cold weather comfort food, and a great use for leftover ham. Easy and quick to put together, and leftovers freeze well. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    this was very good although I did do a few amount adjustments, we like extreme spice, I omitted the cayenne and I added in about 1 tablespoon crushed chili flakes with the onion, peppers and garlic and also added in one fresh jalapeno pepper, I increased the fresh garlic to 3 tablespoons and increased the ham amount, thanks for sharing this lazyme, this will be enjoyed for Super Bowl Sunday!

    Excellent and easy. Substituted 1/2 cup chicken broth for white wine and increased the rice to 1 cup. Was delicious!
