- 5 garlic gloves minced shopping list
- 1 Italian dry sausage such as soprasatta, skin removed, sliced thin and halved. shopping list
- 1-1/2 cup rice shopping list
- 3-1/2 cups water/chicken stock shopping list
- 2 tablespoons 'better than bullion-chicken flavored' is using water - which is what I did and prefer than using canned chicken stock. shopping list
- fresh cracked pepper shopping list
- olive oil shopping list
How to make it
- In a large pot, pour enough olive oil to coat the bottom.
- On medium heat, add diced onions and sliced sausages. Sautee till onions are wilted and starting to be translucent.
- Add both peppers and garlic, let cook one minute.
- Add beans and rice.
- Add fresh cracked pepper, and additional spices you might like - such as cumin, old bay, hot sauce, etc.
- Stir till all ingredients are combined.
- Then add water/chicken stock/better than bullion - you might need to add additional water, since you want enough water to be at the same height as all the ingredients in your pot.
- Cover with lid and put heat onto high.
- Let come to a boil, then put down on lowest setting and cook for 25 minutes or until all water has evaporated.
- Serve up with a sprinkling of freshly minced parsley and/or chives. I made an amazing twist of reciperules cornbread (link provided) which I used fresh jalapeño versus the chilies and canned corn versus the cream corn as specified in her recipe. It was literally the best corn bread I ever did make.
