    BIG_CHIEF's Note:

    Great on a cold, winter's day! The File' really makes the dish, so try it out. I use the tiny Hillshire Farms mini smoked sausages. You can substitute the chicken bullion cubes for chicken broth or stock. Just add water to broth to make 1 quart. Be sure to cook all or most of the white bottom part of the green onions, reserving some of the green tops for garnish when serving.

      Wonderful stuff - the 30 min prep is fairly accurate, and I ended up inviting a friend over while it was simmering. Will make again and again and again - I did just mix the cooked rice right in at the end - bet it would be good if you added extra water and the (uncooked) rice right at simmer time! Made for Fall 2009 PAC!
