Spicy Sausage and Rice

I think this was the easiest dinner I have made in ages. Seriously. It really doesn’t get any easier than this. And, to top it all off, it was really good! Farmer Doc even wanted leftovers the next day! (He was too late, I ate it all. Smile)

This super-fast, super-easy recipe is from Gooseberry Patch’s new cookbook, “101 Stovetop Suppers”.
101 Stovetop Suppers
Gather all your ingredients. Are you ready? It’s a really long list!
  1. 3-1/2 cups cooked rice
  2. 16-ounces smoked sausage links
  3. 8-ounce jar salsa
  4. Assorted veggies for garnish
Oh, wait, that wasn’t a long list at all! Okay, here we go!

Slice the sausage links into bite-size pieces. I used a package of kielbasa. Because I love kielbasa. Toss the sliced sausage into a large skillet.

Pour in an 8-ounce jar of salsa. You pick the spiciness. (I went with mild.)

Then stir in 3-1/2 cups of cooked rice. I cooked up a fresh batch of brown rice, but you could pull some out of your freezer stash for an even faster meal!

Cook everything over medium heat, stirring occasionally. You want the sausage to be heated through (it should be already cooked and just need a good warm up), and most of the liquid from the salsa to be absorbed.

Top with some fresh garden veggies, and you’re all set! I used a tomato from the grocery store (we’re still waiting for our garden tomatoes to start producing), and a green bell pepper from our garden. Sliced jalapenos would be good here, if you like the spicy kick (I’m not crazy about it). Use your imagination, and go to town with fresh veggies!
