  • 8 ounce(s) turkey andouille, or smoked, sausage, sliced 1/4 inch thick

  • 1 can(s) (14 1/2-ounce) stewed tomatoes, no salt added
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  1. Heat 12-inch skillet on medium-high until hot.  Add olive oil.  When hot, add in celery and saute about 2 minutes.  Add sausage and pepper, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in tomatoes with their juice, rice, chicken, chicken broth, salt, Tabasco, Cajun seasoning; heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is just tender.  Depending on the rice, you may need to add in more broth.
  3. Once rice is finished, add in shrimp and heat until cooked or warmed through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove skillet from heat; stir in green onions.  Serve immediately with Tabasco on the side so guests can season additionally to taste.
