    i threw all the ingredients in the crock pot minus the oil and added a full can of chicken broth and chopped fresh mushrooms it was amazing very flavor full. uncover it for about an hr before serving and any extra liquid will evaporate. u can turn up the heat to speed up the process - 9/19/10

    Just a suggestion: You actually COULD make a lower fat version of this by subsituting the smoked sausage for turkey smoked sausage and using brown rice. Would also go great with lowfat cornbread. Yum! - 8/31/10

    Great suggestion, CMW1981! I will try that. The cornbread idea really sounds wonderful.
