I cut this recipe in half since it's just the two of us here today. I used andouille sausage and added a little bit of fresh thyme seasoning. It has a bit of a kick so those who are unaware of the effect of a teaspoon of cayenne might be better off to add it after cooking until they are sure. But just right for us. It is also on the high end of salty with the chashere's seasoning, so if someone is planning to eat this without the rice, they might consider using a little bit less. But overall, wonderful! Warms us up on this frigid January day. Thanks for sharing.

I used a hot turkey kielbasa and turkey breakfast sausage for this and reduced the cayenne pepper. The resulting dish was plenty spicy for us even served over rice. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

I made a half recipe. It was pretty good, except a bit salty for our tastes. I didn't really know why the oil was added, so I added maybe a half teaspoon, but think you could do without that. I also used up some green pepper and celery I had in the fridge. I had some frozen (I think Hatch) chilies and added one, leaving out the cayenne. (For some strange reason, I had hopes that my 3 year old might actually eat some. Ha!) I even added only a teaspoon of creole seasoning and it was still on the salty side. Next time, might consider using plain water in place of stock (I used bouillon) or keeping water the same and adding 1/2 of the bouillon to cut down on saltiness. I used all turkey summer sausage link. Overall, good with rice and fun for something different.

I added lil smokies to this. Had a great taste. I added a little red pepper paste to this to give it a little more kick. Loved it. I just added the rice in to the mixture and I thought it turned out great. Will be making this again. Made for PAC 2010

This was pretty good and spicy. I used medium italian sausage instead of turkey and only put it 2 teaspoons of creole seasoning which was more than enough for us. I served it with rice and it was even better, albeit spicer, the next day. Thanks for posting.

A Very good and spicy bean dish - a perfect compliment to a dish of white rice.

I wish i could give this recipe more than 2 stars, but this recipe just didnt do it for us, i think because its not food we are used to. It cant be bad because of other reviews it got. This sits VERY heavy in your stomach!
