Total: 40 min.
Beans and rice spell "dinner" in many different languages, and are sublime when paired with a grilled smoked sausage.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb smoked sausage, split lengthwise in half
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup smoked ham, diced (3 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 16 oz can red beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup long grain rice

Directions

  • Broil or grill sausage until browned, keep warm. Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet with tight-fitting lid, saute ham, onion and garlic in oil until lightly browned, about 2-4 minutes. Stir in all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 15-20 minutes. Serve immediately with grilled sausage.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with a green salad and hot French bread.
