Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

can I use fresh red bell pepper instead of pimento?

I have made this several times it is so good. Have added some chicken to it which was good.

your video doesn't always work!!!

Very good with ingredients similar to jambalaya, but different seasonings and taste. I used about 1/2 lb smoked sausage and 1/2 lb chicken breast cut into strips and browned. Didn't have pimiento so I used about 1/4 cup each of chopped red and green pepper. Also added about 1/4 chopped onion. Used soaked/rinsed Basmati rice. Be sure to use a LARGE skillet.
