I used kielbasa and skipped the green pepper because I didn't have any. I added about a cup of cooked brown rice half way through cooking. Nice and spicy and leftovers were great.

Delicious! I did add a can of diced tomatoes to cut down on the spiciness of the Rotel. Served it over rice with cheesy cornbread on the side. Perfect.

YUM!!! My husband and I both love this--just the right kick! This is so easy, he can throw it in the crockpot and take it to work and have it ready by dinnertime. Perfect!

Simple ingredients....BIG taste (and so much like a gumbo-well when mixed with rice of course). We were most impressed. I did only use 1 TBS of italian seasoning, which was perfect for us.

This was one of thse recipes that make you say "WOW"! It was absolutely delicious and had the perfect amount of spiciness. I had to double the recipe to feed my family. However, instead of doubling the sausage, I added in a packaged of diced ham along with the sausage. I served this over rice with cornbread as Miss Annie suggested. My whole family enjoyed this and I'm already looking forward to making it again. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

We make this once every other week or so now that I've printed it. Very easy to make and extremely good. I just keep the sausage in the freezer and voila a perfect meal on hand. Thank you for a great recipe.

This recipe was great, even though I ended up making it a little differently...First off, I used kielbasa, and since I didn't have a can of Rotel, I diced up a small jalepeno and added that to a can of italian style diced tomatoes. Because of the spices already in the tomatoes, I only added 1/2 tsp. more of italian seasoning, and last but not least, I forgot to add the green pepper. I added an extra 1 cup of chicken broth while cooking so I had enough liquid leftover when I added 1 cup of instant brown rice during the last 40 minutes turned on high. It turned out yummy and we didn't have any leftovers! Thanks for the recipe!

I had to be away this afternoon and threw this into the crockpot before I left the house. I came home to a wonderful aroma drifting from the kitchen. We used the spicy tomatoes and chilies. I also used kielbasa to prepare this and subbed Emeril's Essence for the Italian seasoning. Very good, but simple meal combined with rice. I whipped up a batch of cornbread and served this with a tossed salad to round out the meal. I usually have all of these ingredients on hand. That fact, combined with the ease of the recipe and the great flavor of the finished meal will definately make this a keeper.

My husband and I both agree that this recipe will appear at our dinner table often. It is so simple to throw together in the morning before work and I love coming home to the smell of it simmering in the crockpot in the evening. We prepare it as written and serve it over brown rice.

Very good, spicy with original recipe Rotel but not overly so. Used turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat and it was great served over brown rice.
