About the recipe

Whip up this flavorful, classic New Orleans dish for a hearty main or serve along side other beloved Cajun dishes for a dinner party fit for Mardi Gras. 

When we tested this recipe, we added chopped celery (2 ribs), 1 chopped bell pepper, 2 minced cloves garlic, 1 teaspoon dried thyme and 1 teaspoon ground cayenne, just because.

Andouille sausage is a good choice, but smoked sausage is just fine in this easy recipe. You'll need either a very large baking dish, such as a deep-dish lasagna pan or two 2-quart baking pans to cook it all without fear of spillover.

We used Uncle Ben's for the uncooked converted rice in this recipe and Rotel brand diced tomatoes and chile peppers.
