This is an easy and delicious take on a Louisiana classic that you can prepare and cook in 40 minutes! I use turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, but not the flavor.

This was delicious, although I did add some paprika and cumin, as I thought some of the spices were lacking. Really easy and highly suggested!
