Recipe: Gumbo-laya Spicy Sausage Chicken and Shrimp

Summary: Ooh, I love bold, spicy food; how about you? I thoroughly enjoy eating it any time. a rich, tangy, tomatoey base and lots of zesty flavors are the types that I enjoy going a bit heavy with the spice on—a Jambalaya-style stew is a tasty example of just such a thing.
