Jambalaya

This is a delicious family meal, but not low-cal. Easy to prepare and everyone loves it.

2-3 Tbl bacon drippings (use olive oil if you don't have it)
1 large onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped (I omit cause my husband doesn't like bell peppers)
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 lb. ham, in bite-size pieces
1 lb. smoked andouille or kielbasa, in bite-size pieces
2 C rice
1 can chopped tomatoes
3 C canned chicken stock
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne
salt to taste
12 green onions, chopped
1/2 C parsley, chopped

Chop all the veg in your cuisinart and saute about 3 minutes in bacon fat in a big, heavy pot.
Add the meats and cook til brown, 5-8 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring, 5 more minutes. Add tomatoes, stock, and seasonings. Cook til rice is done, about 20 minutes. Add green onions & parsley and stir. Serve w/ a green salad. (If you don't have green onions & parsley this is still delicious)
