Ingredients:

  • Olive oil
  • Yellow onion

  • Red bell pepper
  • Smoked sausage
  • Minced garlic
  • Smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chicken broth
  • Can of diced tomatoes
  • Long-grain white rice
Ingredients

Variations

For best results, use long-grain white rice in this recipe. Brown rice cannot be substituted in this recipe without adjusting the liquid and cooking time. Brown rice requires more liquid to penetrate the outer bran layer and a longer cooking time. 

Any color bell pepper works in this recipe. I opted for red and green to give the dish visual interest, but you can use whatever you have. 

Sweet paprika is a good substitute if you don’t have smoked paprika.

If you enjoy more spice in your meals, I recommend opting for a spicy sausage or adding ¼-½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the dish. 

Sautéed onions and peppers

Instructions:

Heat the oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers and saute for 3-4 minutes or until the vegetables soften. 

Sausage and peppers

Add the sausage and saute for 4-6 minutes or until the sausage starts to caramelize with the veggies. 

Recipe Tip

You can use any smoked pork sausage in this skillet. I used Hillshire Farms Pork Smoked Sausage. I recommend using a smoked sausage as it is already cooked and only needs to be heated through. If you opt for a raw sausage, it will require a longer sauteing time. I recommend browning the sausage before you add the vegetables to the pan so the vegetables do not become mushy. 

Sausage and peppers

Stir in garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper. Simmer the peppers and sausage in the pot for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.

Sausage with rice

Add the broth, tomatoes, and rice and stir well to combine. Bring to a boil, cover the pan, and reduce the heat to medium-low. 

Sausage in garlic tomato sauce

Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from the heat and allow to rest covered for 5 minutes before serving.
