Red Beans and Rice

Basic recipe - can easily change this for your own needs!

1 lb smoked sausage (I like turkey sausage)

1 green bell pepper
1 medium onion
1 or 2 cans of beans (kidney beans are what I use most often)
Worcestershire sauce
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
salt and pepper to taste

First, start your rice cooking. Follow the package directions or be lazy like me by using a rice cooker.
Chop the onion and bell pepper as large or as small as you like.
Cut the smoked sausage into rounds.
Cook the sausage, onion, and bell pepper in a large sided skillet. If it’s not nonstick you might want to use a bit of olive oil or butter.  Continue cooking till the sausage has started to brown and the onions have become opaque. Then add the beans (liquid and all). If you love beans, go with two cans.  Bring to a simmer. Add in Worcestershire sauce to taste. I use at least a tablespoon personally. Add salt and pepper to taste. When rice is done cooking, add it to the skillet. Mix well.
