There’s really nothing we love more than good ol’ American comfort food. But what we don’t always love are the fat and calories that come with it. The challenge here was keeping every last bit of crispy, crunchy, creamy, cheesy comfort while cutting the calories.
This versatile Southern dish has many different interpretations. Here we use a combination of smoked bacon, Italian pork sausage, beef chuck steak, and flavorful chicken thighs to add heady flavor. Cook the rice in with the stew, so the entire dish is permeated with rich, robust flavor.
