Sausage with Yellow Rice and Veggies

Oh my, this is one of those recipes that it is so good it’s hard to stop eating!

The first time I tried yellow rice was just a couple of months ago.  (I made Cheesy Chicken and Yellow Rice in the crock pot.)  After having the yellow rice in that recipe, I started looking around for another recipe that used yellow rice. (And that fit with my family’s tastes, there are lots of fancy-shmancy complicated recipes out there.)

It’s a no-brainer that a recipe which includes both yellow rice and sausage would be good…

Do you have any favorite recipes made with yellow rice?  I would love for you to share your favorite in the comments.

  • Olive Oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper, diced

  • 1 can or 1 3/4 cup of black beans, rinsed

  • +/- 2 cups of sliced smoked sausage (eckrich style)
  • 1 box of yellow rice (I like Zatarin’s)

  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
