I made this as a main dish and used smoked sausage. It definitely had a zing from the pepper, but it was really good.

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars even though I did not use the sausage and I halved it for two people. I was very concerned that the onions and peppers would be too much, but my worries were unfounded. This made a scrumptions side dish to my London Broil and sauteed yellow squash, carrots and green beans. I used two cloves of garlic and one whole large jalepeno (I'm sick, I admit it, we all know I like it "hot"). This is a keeper and it's a recipe that you can play around with to suit your tastes. You could throw in some red bell pepper, a little celery, whatever suits your tastes. Thanks Sackville!!! Superb in my book. Crabby

I made this as dinner tonight for my husband. I don't normally make him his own meal, but he is in class on Thursday nights (usually just goes from work to school) and I had planned a dinner for the kids and I that he doesn't like. As he happened to be home I thought I would try to make something he could eat before he left. I used some low fat chicken and spinach sausage, and I used fast cooking brown rice (as I figured regular brown rice would take too long). We didn't think it was spicy at all, even with the peppers. Lovely flavors and a fast dish to put together.
