“This delicious dish is highly variable. If you don't have much time, substitute instant rice or canned kidney beans for the beans and rice. I make my rice in a rice cooker, but feel free to cook in on the stove according to package directions. You can also use 1 or 2 Tbls cajun seasoning instead of the seasonings listed below. Vary the quantity of spices according to your tastes as well. You can also use chicken broth instead of the stock and water. Finally change up the veges to fit your tastes.”
