This is a very flexible dish. You can use seafood, chicken, sausage, or whatever. Even Tofu would probably work but don't let any Cajuns find out about it.

A variation on this recipe
"The Gumbo Pot has carried on the legacy of serving authentic New Orleans food in the Los Angeles Farmers Market since 1986. A series of New Orleans expatriates have added their touches to the menu over the years, with the main concession to LA tastes having been to make dishes equally flavorful but more healthful than traditional Cajun/Southern fare. This recipe is for thier famous spicy rice dish with chicken and andouille sausage; smoky and hot!" —
Personally, I prefer making it this way
"Emeril's famous dish!" —

1brendajonesWe loved this recipe. I used some bayou style seasoning we already had which had salt so I didn't add extra. It was delicious. I also added the seasoning to the rice which gave it more flavor. Definitely will be making this again!4y ago
