Spruced this up even more by using shallot, celery, bell pepper, and adding sausage and shrimp. I added peas and green onion, celery leaf just before finishing. Easy, semi-homemade, delish! Read More

Spicy to me but my husband ate it up. I used half chicken breasts instead of all the sausage and I added a half can of sweet peas for some color and to sneak in a veggie. Spicy enough you could add more veggies too! Read More

This recipe is a keeper. I did not use 48 oz. of andouille I split the 48 ounces between chicken ham and shrimp and andouille. Delighted. I browned the chicken in olive oil and butter removed it and then added andouille and ham and onion in the remaining oil to saute. Added the cooked chicken. Then followed the recipe. Shrimp was added at the end. However I had to cook it one hour for my desired consistencey. Low and Slow! Great. Rotel made it really special. Read More

Decent flavor but not out of this world 5 star. I used turkey (kielbasa) sausage and the flavor was great. Green chilis were a bit much for us. Next time will skip adding those. Good for leftover lunch for work. Read More
