  2. Do not rush this.
  3. Add chopped white onions and bell pepper.
  4. Next add Rotel™ tomatoes, water and seasoning.
  5. Stir very well over medium high heat.
  6. Cover and reduce to low and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  7. Add crawfish tail meat and raise heat to a slow boil.
  8. Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  9. Take off the heat.
  10. Cover and let set while you cook a pot of white rice (about 3 cups of raw rice, 6 cups water, salt, and butter ).
  11. Serve over the 'cooked' white rice and garnish each bowl with green onion.
  12. This is so good with garlic bread and potato salad or cole slaw.
