I found this recipe years ago and substituted Cajun stewed tomatoes for a bolder taste. Now I prepare this dish for out-of-state guests who want to taste some Cajun food. Everyone who tries it gives it high marks. Plus, it's easy to prepare. —Sue Fontenot, Kinder, Louisiana
1-1/2 pounds smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
3 cups cubed fully cooked ham
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
2 cups chopped peeled tomatoes
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
Salt to taste
Hot pepper sauce to taste
In a Dutch oven, saute the onion, green pepper and green onions in oil for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour and cook until bubbly. Gradually add water; bring to a boil. Add the corn, sausage, ham, tomatoes, tomato paste, cayenne, salt and pepper sauce.
Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
