This recipe is extremely easy to multiply, just increase most of your ingredients by 1 for each cup of rice you use.
2 cups rice = 4-8 servings: You'll need to use 2 Bell Peppers, 1 Onion, 2 Stalks Celery, 2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper.
The amount of chicken broth you'll want to multiply by 2 (It's about 2 -2.5 cups of broth for each cup of rice you use, depending on the type of rice you use).
You can use the same amount of sausage for up to 3 cups of rice.
If you use more than 3 cups of rice, I suggest using an extra pound of sausage.
1-3 cups rice = 1lb sausage
4-6 cups rice = 2lb sausage
7-9 cups rice = 3lb sausage, etc.
