  • If your children find Andouille Sausage to be too spicy, you can replace with Kielbasa.
  • Shorten cooking time by using pre-chopped carrots, onions and peppers found in your local grocery store (check the fresh produce and/or the freezer section!)
  • You can use either Cajun or Creole seasoning here. The main difference is that you use “cajun” make sure you add 1 tsp of dried oregano to the recipe!
