This is so amazing! I loved the flavor and the ease of this dish. I couldn't find andoille sausage at the store so I used premade chicken meatballs. Also, I didn't brown or saute anything. I just through everything in the pot. Absolutely delisious! I served this over white rice and it makes about 6 servings.
I made this yesterday. Very tasty and spicy! I would try 2 teaspoons of Creole seasoning if you don't like a lot of spice. The recipe makes a good amount; great for a family.
