Shrimp and Rice Casserole (Or Crawfish)

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Kikimony

This is not spicy. I usually use the mild Rotel tomatoes. BUT when I double this I use one mild and one hot Rotel.

A very good jambalaya-like recipe, and so easy to put together before baking the casserole. I only had 1 lb of shrimp, instead of two. No problem, we still had plenty of shrimp in each serving. Next time, I'll add the shrimp to cook for a few minutes when the casserole is nearly done. The shrimp were tasty, but seemed a little bit overcooked. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It will be made again.
