Weekend Recipe - Best Ever Jambalaya

This month the recipe theme is Jambalaya so here is another Jambalaya recipes.  What I find is that which sausage you want to use, what seafoods you add, and if you add pork and/or chicken is regional due to availability or culture.  This recipes I found in Taste of Home Magazine several years back, but I no longer have the date of the magazine, as I only saved the clipping.  I'm not sure I think it is the best ever, but you can be the judge.

Best Ever Jambalaya from Taste of Home

2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 pound fully cooked Spanish chorizo links, sliced
2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
3 cups chicken broth
2 large green peppers, chopped
1 large onion, chopped

1 Tbls N’Orlean Spirit by Backyard Patch Herbs or any other Cajun seasoning
2 tsp pepper sauce (like Tabasco)
3 cups instant brown rice
1/2 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined


In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chorizo and ham; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until browned. Add chicken to pan; cook 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink.
