1/2 Green Bell Pepper Diced, can add more if desired
6 links Hot Pork Sausage, sliced
1/2 -1 cup Smoked Tasso, diced
4 Chicken Breasts, cubed (can use bone in if desired)
2 teaspoon or season to taste A Cajun Life® All Purpose Seasoning
2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning

Method 1: (the way Chris likes it)
Bring 8 quarts of water to a rolling boil.
Add all ingredients to water.
Bring to back to boil and continue to hard boil on for at least 2 hours being careful not to let over flow. Trust us, you’ll need to adjust heat to prevent water from tumbling over, each stove is different but once water starts to rise, reduce heat until you get a hard boil that doesn’t cause water to rise.
Add water as needed to desired consistency.
