    cup chopped red bell pepper (3c green and red)

  • (2 cups chopped celery)

  • 1

    tablespoon minced garlic (2 1/2 T)

  • 6

    ounces Andouille sausage, sliced (24 ounces)

  • 1

    cup uncooked long-grain white rice (2 1/2 c)

  • 1

    teaspoon paprika (2 1/2 t.)

  • 1

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (2 t.)

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano (2 t.)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon onion powder (omitted)

  • ( 1 1/2 T. or to taste, Cajun seasoning)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon dried thyme (1 1/2 t.)

  • 1/4

    teaspoon garlic salt (omitted)

  • (Most of a broasted chicken cut in to pieces)

  • 1

    bay leaf (omitted)

  • 2

    cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth (5 cups regular)

  • 3/4

    cup water ( 1 1/2 c)

  • 1

    tablespoon tomato paste (omitted)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon hot pepper sauce (1 t.)

  • 1

    (14.5-ounce) can no salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained (32 oz. regular)

  • 1/2

    pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp (1 1/2 pounds jumbo)

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (omitted – didn’t have)

Directions

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven (I used a stock pot) over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, chopped bell pepper, minced garlic, and sausage; sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add rice and the next 7 ingredients (through bay leaf); cook 2 minutes. Add broth, water, tomato paste, hot pepper sauce, and diced tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Add shrimp; cook 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Stir in parsley. (The recipe I did is in the parenthesis. It makes a HUGE amount. My shrimp was all frozen in a block so that’s why I increased the recipe. The broasted chicken leftovers were a good addition also. I shared it with a few folks and still have a large amount left. So far I’ve gotten rave reviews so give it a try. I rarely follow a recipe exactly hence the additions and omissions.)
