  1. Combine the rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until rice is tender and water has been absorbed.

Very Good, the only change I made was to add Rotel-Mild. My wife says it is the best she has ever had, can't get enough. Very good over a Rib-eye.

This was a very quick and easy etouffee recipe. My husband and I had to add some hot sauce to it, but it was perfect for my 6 yr. old.

Very simple to make with only about ten minutes of prep work. I ended up using about 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne, with 1/2 tsp pepper/salt. Delicious, and well received at dinner.

A big hit with the 40 people I cook for everyday...
