Cajun Rice Delight Recipe
Ingredients: 1 c. extra long grain rice, 8 oz smoked link sausage (sliced...I doubled mine b/c that is how much was in the pkg), 1/2 c. onion (chopped), 1/2 c. green pepper (chopped), 2 c. okra (I skipped this), 16 oz. canned whole tomatoes (I chopped mine into fourths and I drained the juice from the can, but I did let some of the juice from the innards plop into the pan), 10 3/4 oz can chicken broth, 2 c. water, 1 t. sage, 1 t. hot sauce (skipped this), salt and pepper to taste.
Instructions: In a large pan, combine all the ingredients (uncooked at this point except the sausage which comes pre-cooked). Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat to a simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and simmer an additional 10 minutes (or until the water has evaporated and the rice looks ready to go).
