Thanks to everyone who entered the BF Scavenger Hunt! Yes, I know it was a pain for me to make you all look up stuff (altho most of it was Google-able) but I HOPE you found some good resources in your search.
Anyhoo...the winners are:
- Heather H.
- Samantha M.
- Gwen K.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 pounds smoked sausage ( Windi used 2-3 because her hubby to be likes extra meat)
1 large onion, chopped
2 chopped green bell peppers
2 chopped celery stalks
Cajun seasoning to taste
1 c. uncooked (Windi's recipe called for 2 - she thinks - Nik recommends one)
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilis with juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 cups chicken or beef broth I used beef
3 bay leaves
1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp (30-40 per pound - Windi used a bag of frozen precooked shrimp)
2 cans small red beans (Windi threw in the liquid that the beans were canned in -- NIK NOTE: I would drain and rinse as MOST of the sodium is in that canning liquid!)
3 diced fresh tomatoes (another one of my added bonuses)
