This was easy, filling, and tasted good. I omitted the bacon (counting fat and calories!) I did not put the rice into the mix, just served the dish on top of rice. I had veg broth so I used it instead of chix broth. Omitted the salt, but used some herbs and spices in its place. Used cooked dry beans instead of cannd.

Extremely flavorful and delicious! The hot sauce adds just the right amount of heat, not overwhelming at all. I used Frank's Red Hot as I didn't have any Tabasco on hand. We had this with creole seasoned chicken breast, but it could stand quite well on it's own as a meal. Excellent find!! Will be making again and again, thanks for sharing.
