2 (14.5 oz.) cans stewed tomatoes

2 cups water

2 Tablespoons minced garlic

1 teaspoon basil

1 teaspoon rosemary

1 teaspoon oregano

2 teaspoons fresh ground black peppercorns

1 teaspoon salt

1 can cream of mushroom soup, optional

Brown chicken and sausage in large pot with vegetable oil. Add onions, bell pepper and jalapeno and sauté on low heat. Once the vegetables are soft, add stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, water and garlic; stir well. Begin adding herbs and seasonings to mixture. Bring to a boil; return to medium heat for 30 minutes or until sauce is cooked to your desire consistence. If a thicker sauce is desired, you can add a can of cream of mushroom soup; however, you will not need to add additional salt. Serve over rice. Serves 12.
