I made this with the shrimp, andouille sausage and leftover chicken (my wife doesn't like shrimp) and it was very good. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing.

I used chicken broth instead of water, added some rotisserie chicken. Had andouie sausage. Made a delicious meal, loved it!
