    1. 1
      Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
    2. 2
      Add sausage to pan and brown it, about 5 minutes. Flip it around once or twice, but don't mess with it too much or it won't brown.
    3. 3
      Add onions, garlic, peppers, salt and ground pepper. Stir to coat in oil and sauté until the onions just begin to soften.
    4. 4
      Add the rice, stir it around to coat, and let it brown for a minute.
    5. 5
      Add the stock and loosen any brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cover the skillet, reduce the heat way down, and simmer for 20 minutes. As with any rice dish cooked this way, don't lift the lid!
    6. 6
      After 20 minutes, turn off the heat, fluff the rice with a fork, replace the lid, and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

      - You can use any cured sausage that you like. I like to use a good beef and jalapeño kielbasa or country sausage.
    10. 10
      - To get the prettiest little ribbons of poblano pepper, cut the pepper into quarters and thinly slice across the quarters.
    11. 11
      - Chicken or beef stock would work just as well as the veggie stock. I use the veggie stock because I always have a fresh batch on hand.
    12. 12
      - If you've never made your own veggie stock, give it a try! It's super easy, nearly free, and adds a ton of flavor to whatever you're cooking. Plus, YOU control the ingredients.
    13. 13
      - Adjust the salt and pepper to your taste, and maybe jazz it up by adding other spices such as cumin, chili powder, coriander -- whatever strikes your fancy! The basic recipe is tasty on its own, but a cook can always play!
