You’ll love the simplicity of this one-pot skillet meal. No need to dirty lots of dishes to make it. The rice cooks right in the skillet with the rest of the ingredients.

This dish does have a little heat to it, so if you have littles, you may want to omit the ancho chile powder.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb beef kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch slices (See Note)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tb butter
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 15 oz tomato sauce, 1 can
  • 4 oz diced green chilies (mild), 1 can
  • 15 oz black beans, 1 can, drained and rinsed
  • 1 c frozen whole kernel corn
  • 2 1/2 c chicken broth, extra if needed
  • 1 c long grain rice, uncooked
  • shredded cheese for topping

Instructions
 

  • To begin, cook the sliced sausage, onion, and butter together in a large skillet over medium heat until the sausages are slightly golden and the onions are tender. Stir occasionally.
  • Add in the chili powder, ancho chile powder, black pepper, and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Add in the tomato sauce, green chilies, black beans, corn, chicken broth, and rice. Stir to combine.
  • Bring this to a gentle boil, reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the rice is tender. Monitor this as it cooks and add a little extra chicken broth if the mixture begins to get too dry before the rice is cooked through.

Notes

If you have little ones, omit the ancho chili powder to reduce the heat a little.
To make this recipe biblically clean, use a beef sausage.
