I found this recipe online , and after some alteration , i thought this stew was really delicious . Not to mention it’s easy and quick with the rotisserie chicken . If you feel like it , you can always roast the chicken yourself instead of buying the rotisserie chicken from the store . I think the rotisserie chicken from the store really helps a lot when you don’t have much time , this is a great dish for weekdays .
As far as the ingredients , basically you have everything on hand , nothing that is out of ordinary . The only spices i used here is cumin , which can be found easily at the grocery store too . You can also substitute the red beans with other kind of beans that you like . I don’t really care for black beans , so i stick with red beans , i think pinto beans should be good for this too .
You need :
1 tbsp. of red pepper flakes
5 cloves of garlic , minced
8 oz of andouille sausage
1 onion , chopped
3 ribs of celery , chopped
2-3 jalapeno , seeds removed , chopped
1-2 thai pepper , chopped ( i love spicy food , so this is optional if you don’t like spicy stuff )
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
4 cups of chicken stock
2 bay leaves
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tbsp. of salt
1/4 cup of light brown sugar
2 , 15 oz can of red kidney beans
3 cups of shredded chicken
1. In a dutch oven or soup pot , heat up 4 tbsp. olive oil , then add red pepper flakes and garlic , garlic cook very fast , don’t let it burn . Add your sausages ( diced sausages ) , then cook until brown about 3-4 minutes .
2. Then add your celery , jalapenos , thai pepper and onion into the pot , cook about 5 minutes or so . Then add your flour , cook about a minute or so .
3. With whisk , get ready to pout the chicken stock into the pot with roux , whisking as you pouring it little at a time to prevent clumps . Then add bay leaves , cumin , salt , and pepper .
4. Add your chicken and red kidney beans , and bring to boil then simmer for 10 minutes .
Serve with rice .
