Recipe by Bayou Andy

With fall coming on strong, here is a great full-bodied dish that can be prepared with any consistency you desire. If too thick, simply add a little more water and simmer. This is from The Frank Davis Seafood Notebook. Easy but good enough for company. (Note: You can use "Healthy Request" soups by Campbell's to lighten this dish up.)
