Cheesy Sausage & Rice


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large bell peppers, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic 
  • 1 pound precooked smoked sausage, sliced and quartered 
  • 2 teaspoons Adobo seasoning 
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups Minute Rice
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cans (10.5 ounces each) cream of chicken soup
  • 12 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, divided


  1. In a large skillet (cast iron if you have one), sauté the bell peppers and onions in oil until tender.
  2. Add the garlic and cook a minute until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the sausage, Adobo and black pepper until well combined, and cook for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the rice, broth, soups and half the shredded cheese, stirring until well combined, and bring to a simmer.
  5. Cover the skillet and continue simmering for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Once the moisture has been absorbed into the rice, remove from the heat.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over top and cover to allow it to melt.
  8. Serve hot alongside a salad or steamed vegetables for a complete meal.

The original recipe for this delicious dish came from the one and only Mississippi Kween on TikTok; her video can be found here.
