MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 15, 2014

I made this for four people so I just doubled the recipe. I added 1 tablespoon of McCormick's Cajun Seasoning. I felt that it did not call for enough spice. I also used low salt chicken broth and salt free diced tomatoes. I threw in 2 packages of Success Rice. The did not use Johnsonville smoked sausage, but used store brand sweet sausage instead. This was a big hit with everyone. I will most definitely make it again and again. It was not overly spicy and did not need any added salt.

This is a real keeper....very tasty. I did have to use more chicken broth (about another 1/2 cup) to get the rice cooked, and my husband would have liked a little more rice. Will definitely make again.
