Pull off weeknight dinner in minutes with a few on-hand ingredients from the cupboard and fridge.

Ingredients

3/4
cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
2
cups water
1
cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
8
oz smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, thinly sliced
1
can (15 to 16 oz) black-eyed peas, drained, rinsed
1
cup Green Giant ® Valley Fresh Steamers™ Niblets® frozen corn

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart saucepan, mix rice and water. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 Stir in salsa, sausage, peas and corn. Cook uncovered 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until corn is tender and mixture is thoroughly heated.

Expert Tips

The salsa is added after the rice is cooked because the acid from the tomatoes can prevent the rice from becoming tender.

A mixed fresh-fruit salad and corn muffins are tasty accompaniments for this meal.
