** A  good friend of mine took this recipe and modified it by replacing the sausage with shredded roasted chicken, trading kidney beans for chickpeas and added kale.

*** If you are watching your cholesterol, go ahead and remove the shrimp

**** You can replace the brown rice with Quinoa to slightly increase the protein
