    It is a cajun seasoning you can normally pick up at in the spice isle in the local grocery store. It makes the dish!

    Very good! My entire family loved it! It's incredibly aromatic, so tasty, and when there is a crock pot involved, it's so simple. I found that the recipe yields MANY more than 6 servings. - 9/29/09

    I also loved this recipe. However, my rice did not cook either. So, I removed it to stove and the rice cooked in a very short time. - 9/14/08

    Hmmm. Maybe putting the rice in sooner would help or cooking the whole thing on high. I know for my slow cooker it only takes about an hour. A friend said that some crock pots differ in time and temp. I don't know? I cooked it last weekend and it worked.
