From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Rice is nice, but it’s terrific when blended with a calorie-smart, spicy tomato-based sauce along with red beans, fresh veggies and kielbasa.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
3/4
lb smoked turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1
cup chopped onions (1 large)
1/2
cup chopped green bell pepper (1 small)
1/2
cup chopped red bell pepper (1 small)
1/2
cup chopped celery (1 medium stalk)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped, or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2
dried bay leaves
1
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1
can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic stewed tomatoes
1
teaspoon seasoned salt
2
cans (15 oz each) Progresso™ red kidney beans, drained, rinsed
1
cup uncooked long-grain white rice
2
cups water
Frank's™ RedHot™ Original cayenne pepper sauce

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add kielbasa, onions, bell peppers, celery, garlic, bay leaves and thyme; cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.
