We will definitely make this recipe regularly. I couldn't find the sausage that it called for so I used smoked turkey sausage. I also only used 2 stalks of celery rather than three. Finally, I sauteed the veggies and sausage with just a bit of olive oil. Other than that I followed the recipe. It seemed thick for a typical red beans and rice but still very good. A great recipe for everyday meals.

Great authentic flavor! Had never used Chicken Andouille before and don't think I will ever buy the pork variety again! Served it to company and kids and adults alike went back for seconds!! Definitely a keeper!

This was a great recipe! It was a big hit with everyone, even the 4 year old. I used the slow cooker version and was really impressed. The only suggestion I would make is to add the sausage half way to avoid it from overcooking. Will definitely cook again.

Delicious. I added more Cajun Spice than called for and we loved it. I will definetly make again!

I thought this was a good, solid recipe, but I don't think I'd serve it for guests. We'l likely have again.

A hearty and tasty recipe ! I agree with the post that the sausage should be added later to avoid overcooking. I think next time I will saute the sausage as the recipe says, but then set it aside and add it back at the end. Even my 3 year old and 1 year old boys enjoyed the beans! (The sausage was a bit too spicy for them but my husband and I loved it.)

Could not be easier and tastier! Made in the crockpot for Sunday dinner, came home to a wonderful aroma and when a friend came by they could smell it from the street and wondered what we were eating. Husband loved it. Perfect blend of seasoning and cheap to make, one that we will eat again for sure. Served it with white rice. If you have a timer on your rice cooker like we do, you can set it and come home to a wonderful meal already waiting for you.

Simply delicious! I made this meal last night for a room of critics (my 10 & 6 y.o. sons) and they loved it. I added smoked turkey sausage and a bit of broth other than that I followed the recipe.

Followed the recipe, but used kielbasi and added diced ham. This is one of our favorite recipes!
