Black Beans, Rice and Chicken Sausage

I love one pot meals ~ they're versatile, easy to make, full of flavor and you get all your nutritious food groups in one pot! In this meal I used a package of Johnsonville Chicken Sausage with Chipotle Pepper and Monterey Jack Cheese, it added nice flavor, but you can use any flavor or plain Chicken Sausage.

2 cups instant rice, uncooked
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 12 0z package Johnsonville Chicken Sausage with Chipotle Pepper & Montery Jack, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
1/2 med onion, chopped
1 small red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp oregano
1 15.5 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1/2 chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
Cook rice as package label directs.  In a large heavy skillet, heat oil over med-high heat, add the sausage, onion, pepper and garlic and cook, stirring often until sausage is lightly browned and vegetables are tender, about 5 mins.  Add the spices and sauté for 2 mins.  Stir in the beans, tomatoes and broth, cook and stir for 5 mins.  Stir in the rice and cook, stirring well for 2 minutes, season with salt and pepper to taste, Serve and enjoy!
