I have to rate this a 4-star as a good base recipe. However, with a few adjustments, definitely a 5-star. Most of the local markets here don't carry true Cajun/Creole/New Orleans ingredients so I have to make do with what is available. I used 2lbs of hot links, yellow onion, red and yellow bell pepper, beef broth instead of water, beef bouillon cubes (about 4), 3 jalapenos diced, 2 tsp cayenne and a dash of seasoned salt. I forgot the bay leaves but turns out they weren't needed. The husband LOVED this and frankly, I agree. It was flavorful and hearty with a good kick. I also made mango chutney and corn bread to go with it and the whole meal was to die for awesome. Next time, I may not rinse the black beans since they sometimes come in a lovely lime juice which might be a good addition. I did use the black beans with jalapenos though. Yummy!
