To begin, you will need 2 cups of cooked rice. To make this amount, start with 2/3 cup uncooked rice. Use the quantity of water needed for your particular brand of rice – simply cook according to package directions.

While the rice is cooking, dice a green bell pepper, and a small onion. (About 2/3 cup diced onion.) Cut a package (14 ounces) of andouille sausage into 1/2 inch pieces.
