    It turned out well. I reduced to 4 servings and used Tasso ham (preferred in SC recipe).

    Great Recipe! Added fresh chopped jalapeño for taste and color. Would suggest to sauté shrimp separately.

    I made this with a few tweaks, but it turned out delicious. I made polenta (didn't have grits) and didn't have bell peppers (so had broccolini on the side instead) and added mushrooms. Was spicy and flavourful!
