Not sure why it is called Cajun, but it's definitely delicious and even kid friendly! I did precook my rice because I use brown rice and I didn't want to risk overcooking the vegetables during the longer cooking time for whole grain brown rice. <br/>I used one medium California wonderball green peppers and three small tomatoes from our own garden. <br/>I really thought I would have to add more spices, but I love the fresh flavor of the simple ingredients!
I'm visiting my oldest son and I've been cooking for him and his new wife. Tried this recipe last night and it was a huge hit with us. I did add some cayenne pepper, garlic salt, ground black pepper and alittle greek seasoning for more of a spicy flavor. This is a KEEPER! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)
Zaar needs to inrease the # of stars for rating. This was off the chain. I don't use ground turkey, but I found this on sale, 20 ounces for .69, so I bought 2 to try. Ground turkey will be bought more often. I made the entire recipe just as was except for celery, because I didn't have any. Rotel diced tomatoes were used instead of regular. I had two servings, my nephew finished it up. Made for Cajun/Creole.
