The Easiest Hot Sausage & Kidney Beans With Rice

Recipe by firealarmqueen
READY IN: 35mins




  • Get your rice started so that it'll be finished cooking when you are ready to eat.
  • Slice the Hot Links lengthwise and then cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • Peel your onion & de-seed the pepper. Cut the green pepper and onion into 1/2 inch chunks (you could also do strips, if you prefer).
  • Heat your oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add your peppers and onions and cook until they are the desired "done-ness" (I prefer mine well-cooked, so I occasionally pop them in the microwave for a minute or two to speed up the cooking process.).
  • Remove peppers & onions from skillet (place in a bowl until later).
  • Place sausage in skillet and cook until desired "done-ness" (we like ours nearly "blackened" with a bit of crisp on the outside).
  • Drain most of the oil from skillet and then return onions/peppers. Add the can of kidney beans (drained).
  • Continue cooking for several minutes to heat the beans and get some of the sausage flavor in the veggies.
  • To serve: spoon a scoop of cooked rice on each plate/bowl (this is a bowl meal at our house!) Then top with the sausage mixture. A hearty spoonful (or two) of salsa on top finishes it off!
  • This is usually from cabinets/fridge to plate in about 30 minutes. This time-range depends on how well cooked you like the vegetables, if you do any pre-cooking in the microwave, etc.
  • In our house this recipe, as indicated above, serves 2 adults and 2 children (under the age of 3), with one serving leftover. I estimate that to serve *about* four.
