    JanetB-KY's Note:

    I got this one from Southern Living Magazine and tweaked it some as it was kind of bland to begin with. Needless to say, once I got a hold of it, with my love of spice, it was no longer bland. If you want just mild spice though, just omit all spice but the salt, pepper and onions and green peppers and up the salt to taste as I lowered it to take into account the saltiness of the Cajun Seasoning.

      Absolutely delicious. I was too lazy to cook it on the stove, so i changed the white rice to brown and dumped everything into the crock pot. I cooked it on high for about 4.5 hours, and low for one. Incredibly flavorful and plenty of leftovers. Hope that it freezes well - guess i'll find out!

      This was amazing, I didn't have an onion (I know) so I put in onion powder. I had a ham hock from a honey baked ham, so I didn't add the brown sugar. I put the rice on the side. The family LOVED this. My husband went on and on. My daughter turned her nose up when I told her what we were having. When she tried it, she had seconds. Definitely will make it again. You should give it a try.

      My husband immediately called a friend a bragged/invited him over for some! & declared this is what he's having for dinner too! (I had run out of eggs, and so just wrapped servings up in warm tortillas. I had the canned beans and cooked the rice separate.) When your husband brags about your cookin'--that's the ultimate compliment! Thank you!
