When this recipe appeared in the November 2000 issue of Southern Living, I made this dish while on vacation. We loved this dish so much that I made it for Thanksgiving and Christmas that year. It is not only delicious, but it also makes a beautiful presentation because of the different colored bell peppers. My family now requests this for every holiday. Being from Louisiana, I can get LA crawfish mostly year round. Try it, if you haven't yet! It serves a crowd.
