Notes:

* You can also use regular andouille sausage, just adjust oil as needed as some sausages have more fat than others. However, the chicken or turkey andouille creates a lighter dish.

**I use canned tomatoes in this dish when fresh is not available. If you are allergic to tomatoes, you can leave them out and it would still be tasty. Just add a little smoked paprika to the seasoning step to add a little color and smokiness to the dish in place of tomatoes. I also love the taste of fire roasted tomatoes in this dish. If you use fresh, you may have to adjust your liquid.

***If you are not allergic to seafood, try also adding a few shrimp to this dish during the last 5 to 10 minutes of cook time.
