Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and next 3 ingredients; sauté until tender. Add ham, sausage, and next 4 ingredients. Cook, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes.
Stir in rice, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes over low heat. Garnish, if desired.
I give this 5 because the recipe is perfect as written. I froze some but regretted it because I wanted more of that awesome flavor.
Quick, easy, and tasty. I used brown rice and liked it.
