Lazy Jambalaya

2 tbsp. butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup total colored peppers, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
one 1 lb. package sausage (such as Hillshire Farms) cut 1/4" thick
2 cups chicken broth
3 tbsp. hot sauce
one 14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
cajun seasoning to taste, if desired
1 cup UNcooked rice

Melt butter in heavy saucepan over med-high heat. Add onion, peppers, garlic & sausage. Cook 5 minutes or until veggies are tender, stirring often.
Stir in rice, chicken broth, hot sauce, tomatoes & if desired, cajun seasoning.
Mix well & bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover & simmer for 25 minutes, or until rice is tender.
Remove from heat & let sit 5 minutes before fluffing w/a fork.


  1. i have made this several times WITHOUT the tomatoes, because DH hates them. it still works well.

  2. just edited this because, as i made it last night i realized i had the recipe written down incorrectly. the rice should be UNCOOKED going in & the broth cooks it...ooops! sorry.
