This dish has it all. It gets color from the bell peppers, crunch from the pecans, sweetness from the raisins and saltiness from the bacon.

A simplified but delicious version of this Cajun favorite takes it from a once-in-a-while special treat to a weeknight favorite. You don't slave over a traditional roux, and the recipe only takes 40 minutes.

This is basically the same recipe I use except I use 2 cans cream of mushroom, only 2 tbsp parsley, 2 to 3 onions instead of a cup and 3 bell peppers. So same ingredients just different amounts. You can find crawfish tails in the frozen section. Also season your crawfish tails with cajun seasoning. I reccomend tonys chacheres. If you cant find crawfish you can use shrimp. Good luck!!

Forgot to tell you to serve it over rice

Thanks for the recipe. I have never seen crawfish tails where I live so will be using shrimp. Thanks. Saved

A special entree, excellent with a loaf of French bread to dunk in the sauce, add a glass of wine and a pasta, and you have an incredible meal for any guest.

They mention a spice rub, but I just used my own personal one.

Something super easy to do is buy the box mix of zatarain's jumbalaya and cook it with some sausage. THey have the best box mixes. They have red beans and rice and even gumbo. It is super easy and has a real authintic flavor.

Thanks you Jess124 for all the great tips. I never use a rice mix but will give it a try.

This is the only rice mix I buy. It is my go to easy weeknight meal. You can use sausage, shrimp or chicken. Leftover meat works great in this.

This is super easy with the mix, and a good introduction to the food. It's also a dish easily made from scratch once you have a feel for the flavors later on.
