READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ksduffster

This is from Cooking Light magazine. I love it because it is fast, tasty, and relatively economical. If you don't want to use spicy andouille, substitute your favorite sausage instead.

I made 1/2 cup of Basmati rice with 1-1/2 cup of chicken broth, then followed the recipe using pork andouille sausage, Tony's seasoning and Tobasco Chipotle hot sauce. Wow!
