Mmmmmm, this was really good! I didn't have file powder, I'm not sure it would be readily available way up here in Canada. I was out of celery and I used chorizo, chicken, ham and shrimp with a 28 ounce can if diced tomatoes. I cooked the rice separately also due to texture preference. I didn't add the red pepper flakes because it smelled spicy while it was cooking and I was worried it would be too spicy for the kids. I tasted it before adding shrimp at the end and it was rich and delicious. Spooning the jambalaya over the rice mellowed the flavour so perhaps it wouldn't have been too spicy with the red pepper flakes after all but it was still so delicious. I will most definitely be making this again!
