One pot meals are the best because I really dislike doing dishes. And by dislike I mean ‘hate with the fire of 1000 suns.’
Not only is this a one pot wonder, it’s also quite simple to put together and is ready in about thirty minutes. It’s also a totally complete meal…meat, veggies and grain, all in one. Heck yes!
Feel free to adjust the cayenne to your liking. I used this version and was able to feed it to my kids. It all kind of depends on what kind of sausage you’re using. Some andouille is hotter than others. If you can’t find andouille or find it too spicy, you can use smoked ham.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion, diced
2 bell peppers, whatever color you like, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more, to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more, to taste
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 chicken adouille sausage, diced
1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can no-salt added diced tomatoes
1 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp
Step by Step:
1. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat.
2. Add the onion, peppers and garlic and saute until they begin to soften, about 10 minutes.
3. Mix in the ingredients through diced tomatoes.
4. Bring to a boil.
5. Stir in the rice, cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until rice is done and most of the liquid is absorbed.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste and serve with hot pepper sauce.
Serving size is about 2 cups – serves 4.
