Sausage and Rice

Sausage and Rice

Sausage and Rice combines smoked chicken sausage, crisp sweet corn, savory black beans, roasted bell peppers, and tender rice in an unforgettably delicious dinner! This meal is ready in 30 minutes or less and is all prepared in one skillet! Burrito bowls are hugely popular at my home — in fact, I’ve shared some of our favorites over the years. (These Sweet Potato Burrito Bowls, these Bean and Chicken Burrito Bowls, these meal prep Chicken Burrito Bowls, or Street Corn Burrito Bowls are made regularly at my home.)

So I had to figure out a way to make burrito bowls happen in this series — minimal chopping, minimal ingredients, fewer dishes. And after a bit of trial and error, I’m elated to share this simple burrito-bowl type recipe. It’s protein-packed with loads of flavor and plenty of melty cheese, but it’s not going to require a huge time commitment to make — we’re looking at 30 minutes or less!

To get Sausage and Rice on the table that quickly, we rely on quite a few shortcuts which we’ll discuss below. Sausage and Rice is part of our Back-To-School Lifesavers — a series of recipes that are intended to have little (or no) veggie chopping, minimal prep time, around 10 ingredients or less (not including pantry staples), and use kid-friendly ingredients.
