Very good! Easy to make and a big hit with my family. I used saved bacon grease to sauté veggies, garlic, and smoked sausage. For convenience I used some deboned rotisserie chicken instead of cooking my own. Didn't use file or pepper sauce (didn't have either). At the suggestion of others' comments I did add basil, oregano, and thyme to taste. Kept adding extra broth so the dish would have a stew like consistency and the rice could cook completely. Keep watching the last 10 minutes of the rice cooking and stir occasionally to keep from sticking and drying into a sticky blob. A thickener such as cornstarch or file isn't necessary if you cook the rice in the dish and not separately. I served this with hot buttermilk cornbread. I will definitely make again.
