Smoked Sausage with Black Beans

After just having gotten over a cold a few weeks ago, I’m battling another one now!  So frustrating.  My poor red nose can’t handle being blown anymore! I’m thinking I should be good for another few years after these back to back colds.

My appetite is sadly lacking again at the moment, but I do want to quickly share a recipe today that I think you’ll enjoy 🙂

I love the combination of smoked sausage, beans, and rice together.  Red beans and rice is one of my favorite meals.  This recipe has similar ingredients but with a twist.  It has more of a Southwestern flare.

It’s easy to make, calls for just a few simple ingredients, and is delicious!  What more could you ask for? 🙂

I hope you give this a try, and until next time, Happy Cooking!

Smoked Sausage with Black Beans


  • 1/2 lb smoked sausage, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped bell pepper (I used a combo of red and orange)
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  •  1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed


In a large skillet, cook the sausage until it starts to brown.  Add in the onion, bell pepper, and garlic.  Cook until the vegetables have softened.  Add in all remaining ingredients.  Simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until heated through.  Serve over rice.

  1. I think that looks way better than the usual red beans and rice…way more colorful!
