Rhonda Healy - Spicy Southern Kitchen


2 tablespoons Vegetable or Olive oil, divided
1 pound andouille or kielbasa sausage, sliced
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (14.5-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce, undrained
2 cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce, I like the garlic flavor sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup long grain rice
2 cups diced turkey

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven. Add sausage and cook until browned. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Add remaining oil to the grease in the Dutch oven. Add onion, green pepper and celery and cook until soft, about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add garlic and cook 1 minute.
Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning, Tabasco sauce, pepper, and thyme.
Bring mixture to a simmer and stir in rice and reserved sausage. Cover and cook on low, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes. I like to cook it uncovered for the last 5 minutes to help thicken it up.
Stir in turkey and serve.
