"Chicken, shrimp, crawfish, andouille sausage, mushrooms, bell peppers and onion come together into a rice-based dish that no one can resist! I've never been accused of timid use of ingredients!"

I made this for my mom for mother's day. To reduce fat, I used 1 lb of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks and 1lb of medium large cooked shrimp. I also used one box of dirty rice mix and one of red beans & rice. It also came in handy to not use all of the seasoning pack. I also used Pam garlic spray instead of cloves of garlic. This is not a recipe for those who like bland foods! :-)

Very flavorful, but the recipe calls for too much meat.
