You can easily adjust this recipe for flavor if you prefer spicier.  We love a nice mild Cajun flavor, but some prefer a lot more kick.  Feel free to add peppers, chili powder, or extra Cajun seasoning if desired.

    Thank you! Yummy recipe! I made this tonight, but IDK what happened because I had to add a whole second cup of rice to get it to not be soupy. Once I added the second cup of rice and let that absorb/cook, it was perfect!
