This turned out really tasty. I didn't have cajun seasoning so used 1/2 tsp of red cayenne pepper. It was a lil too spicy for my daughter but the big folks liked it. I'll make it again but tweak the spiciness down during cooking. I used a turkey kielbasa from Trader Joes. I had my teen cook it so she did it in the crock pot for about 3 hours; made it even simpler.
All I can say about this recipe is WOW !!!!.Here is how I prepared this great recipe. All I had was canola oil,so I browned just a 1/2 pound of skinless smoked sausage in it for a little color.Instead of water I used 2 cups of chicken broth,since the chicken broth was already salty I omitted the salt.Also I kept the amount of the rice the same and used some leftover peas and carrots I had in the freezer.For the cajun seasoning, I used Recipe#33092 it worked great.Instead of adding the veggies in step 4,I just added them with the rice and seasoning.I served this with Recipe#101038 and some fried okra.All together this made a very good "southern style comfort meal".Thank you for posting,this will be made again."keep Smiling :)"
