Recipe by Nicole
"This is a takeoff of New Orleans Shrimp, and also a variation of a dish called N'awlins Skillet which I had once in a large chain restaurant. Remember, you'll add the cayenne and crush red pepper to taste!"

black pepper to taste
1 (1 ounce) envelope
dry onion soup mix
2 1/2 cups
cayenne pepper to taste

My husband Chuck-Tony says it's easily an all-time household favorite. Even tasttier, he says, with Tabasco mixed in. Great on top of steamed white rice! ;-)
Very good. We made it without the onion and it still had plenty of onion flavor from the onion soup. The chicken and shrimp could have used a little seasoning. Next time I will saute the meats separately and spice them up a little. It would be very good with roasted red potatoes as a side or in the recipe even.
I was a little apprehensive about making this, I wasn't sure how the onion soup mix "gravy" would end up tasting, but my hubby and I both ended up really liking it! I left out the celery, chilis and green pepper, and added some fresh sliced mushrooms. I seasoned it with a cajun spice blend. I would suggest not adding the shrimp until about 15 minutes from the end of cooking time - they cook up quickly. Thanks for the recipe!
As someone who loves cajun food, this was awesome to me. I loved it. It had just the right heat but then.......the cayenne and red pepper were "to taste"........my taste :) I used andouille instead of kielbasa. I also spiced up my shrimp as I cooked it and likewise with the chicken. As for the gravy,I didnt think it needed anything else but I had cayenne and red pepper in it already along with the salt and pepper. Great one. Thank you!
This was very good. I left out the sausage since I don't eat sausage, and added jalapenos. I also added some thick sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled to make up for the sausage. It was really yummy!
My family loved this recipe. I added canned diced jalapenos (hot) and served it over Zatarain's New Orleans Rice Mix. My teenagers wrapped the rice and cajun mixture in flour tortillas the next day and said it was 'the bomb!' Thanks!!
Okay...this is something i would make when i am running out of ideas or when i don't feel like making anything extraordinary.
