Shrimp and Chicken Jambalaya

This make-ahead version of a Creole classic is medium-hot. Add more pepper or hot pepper sauce if you want your mouth on fire. Instead of shrimp, you could add 1/2 lb lean smoked cubed ham. I also make this just on the stove top too.

The list of ingredients is long, but it goes together quickly.
