Cut this in half for the two of us and still had enough for lunch the next day. It was quite good, very tastey, but a little loose. The rice was cooked just fine, I guess there was just a little to much liquid. Luckly enough we had some wonderful cajun bread to sop up the juice. I don't think the taste was effected at all, it was good. Thanks for posting.
My husband is from Louisiana and we both made this. It was so good and it got his approval! I don't like seafood (go figure, he'd marry someone that doesn't eat seafood) and he said it would be great if there was shrimp in it. We will definetly make this again!
This was great!!! I'm not big on onions so I only used 1 small one and added some yellow and red bell peppers to the mix to fill the void. I also used brown rice instead of white. I will definitely be making this again...
