Chicken, shrimp, crawfish, andouille sausage, mushrooms, bell peppers and onion come together into a rice-based dish that no one can resist! I've never been accused of timid use of ingredients!

I made this for my mom for mother's day. To reduce fat I used 1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks and 1lb of medium large cooked shrimp. I also used one box of dirty rice mix and one of red beans & rice. It also came in handy to not use all of the seasoning pack. I also used Pam garlic spray instead of cloves of garlic. This is not a recipe for those who like bland foods!:-) Read More

Just so so... If anyone finds any exceptional Paella recipes out there please post them here. Basically this didn't taste as good as what I tried in Barcelona; it was too bland. I had leftovers but ended up throwing it away because it just didn't sound good after my first encounter. Read More

If you can get Rabideaux sausage out of Iowa LA it is out of this world. Also I think sauteeing the white part of green onions and adding the green tops at the end will give this more Cajun flair. Read More
