Background: Recipe by: Bill and Nellwyn Grilliette

Note: I usually have to double this recipe.

For my Daddy, I leave out the onions and put in 1/2 of a yellow bell pepper, 1/2 of a green bell pepper, 1/2 red bell pepper, 1/2 orange bell pepper. Or you can use 2 whole bell peppers.

Any meat can be used in etouffee.
