One of my absolute favorites. Hearty - filling, and on a cold Alaska day, nothing reminds me more of the south. I don't alter the recipe - I do include a lot of veggies. Thank you for this!

Made this on New Year's Day and it was a big hit. I fried up some bacon and then sauteed medium chunks of the vegies in a little of the bacon grease. Used ham instead of the sausages, a can of rotel and Emeril's Essence (found here on the site) for the cajun spices. Definately a keeper and one I will use again. Thank you for posting.

Made this today in the crockpot while I was out cleaning leaves...I let it cook for a full 10 hours. It smells SOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!! I did cut down on the spices just a bit since I have at least 1 kid that will be eating it....Maybe next time I'll add a few potatoes??? It needs something....but I am LOVING IT!!! Thanks for a great recipe! I'm always looking for new things to try!
