Made this for the first time. I used some shredded chicken instead of the sausage and added a 1/2 cup more of chicken broth and 1/4 cup more of rice. Will make it again and use a bit more chicken broth and a little more hot pepper sauce. All in all, was a good recipe and pretty easy to make.
Very good, and easy. I used 3/4 pound of beef & cheddar kielbasa (not reduced-fat at all!) and just a few shrimp. My kids wouldn't touch it, but that's their poor taste, not the recipe's fault!
Fantastic recipe!!!!! Only two things I did different... I didnt have red pepper sauce so I used red pepper spice abut 1 tsp and some creole seasoning about 1 tsp. the spice turned out great. You could still taste the shrimp and everything! very yummy I will make this again!!:):):)
I made this last night with pasta not rice because my husband don't eat rice and it was grrreat,yes I will make it again.
Even though this was easy, it turned out great! I added more rice the second time I made it though.
