I made this exactly as written. It was really tasty, but too salty! The only Cajun seasoning blend I have has salt as the first ingredient. I hesitated to put a tablespoon in, but decided to give it a chance. I shouldn't have. The recipe should be adjusted to say "salt-free Cajun seasoning blend", if such a thing exists, then salt can be added as needed. That being said, we loved the spice and flavors in this. I will look for salt-free Cajun seasoning (or just use less of the one I have) and make this again!

Excellent recipe! I substituted brown rice for white, and dried beans for canned. I threw everything in the slow cooker at once. Unfortunately my beans didn't cook up but that was no fault of the recipe. I will make again using canned beans!
