  • this is great. I can my own stewed tomatoes so I just had to add the shrimp and spices. I served over brown rice and everyone was happy - 1/3/12

  • This was excellent, although we tweaked the recipe because we didn't have all the ingredients. Italian sausage and chicken instead of shrimp, and added hot sauce and Arizona Seasoning salt free blend (Penzeys' Spices). Thoroughly enjoyed the meal!!! - 3/3/11

  • Hubby loved this and so did I. I used one can of no salt diced tomatoes, 1 can of RoTel Hot Diced Tomatoes with Habaneros, 8 oz. no salt tomato sauce, & increased the cayenne pepper to 1/2 tsp cause we like extra spicy. Also used 28 oz cooked shrimp vs l lb so we would have lots of yummy leftovers - 11/20/09
