    This was my first meal to make in my IP. It turned out great! I used turkey meat instead of sausage and added smoked paprika for a little kick. Next time Id use slightly less cajun seasoning than the recipe called for. Flavor was great just a little salty for my taste. So easy!

    This was a great recipe and easy to make, but the next time I’m going to use regular smoked sausage instead of turkey.

    First time to use my IP. I used regular sausage and it turned out too salty. We did like it though. Just didn’t love it.

    Easy to make and amazing! I doubled the recipe and added a chopped bell pepper and onion slices. Increased the cook time to 13 minutes just in case and it came out great!

    Was too easy to make from scatchin the instant pot. I never had cajun spice so looked it up online and i had all the spices on hand so made up a spice jar full for next time i need it. OMG such a good dish. I used a bit less of the cajun spice than this recipe asked for as not found of spicy foods.
