One Pot Sausage Peppers with Rice is an easy weeknight dinner recipe that I know you’ll make over and over!

This dinner recipe only uses one pot so not only is the recipe easy, but the clean up is easy too! Cleaning up after dinner is the worst right?! I get so excited when One Pot Sausage Peppers with Rice is on our dinner menu because not only does it make a delicious dinner but I don’t have to slave in the kitchen to make this recipe!

So lets’ get right to it.

What you need to make One Pot Sausage Peppers with Rice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 chopped small yellow onion
  • 1 chopped bell pepper (I use a mix of red and green bell peppers)
  • 12 ounce sausage link (I use smoked sausage)
  • 4 large garlic cloves – minced
  • 8 ounce can of tomato sauce
  • 3 cups white rice
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

We made this today with the cayenne pepper since last time I made it, I made it without cayenne. I was fully expecting my kids not to eat it since it had a little spice to it (not much). Well, they both devoured it! And my son is the world’s pickiest eater!!

Here’s how you make the One Pot Sausage Peppers with Rice:

It starts off with the sausage, peppers, onions, and garlic sauteed in olive oil. I can tell you that everyone in your house will ask what you’re making bc this smells AAAAMAZING! Since everything in here can be eaten as is, it’s up to you how long you want to cook this. I like the sausage to get nice and crispy on the edges and the veggies to get soft so I cook mine about 7-10 minutes.

How glorious does that pot of sausage and veggies up there look?! I can almost smell it just looking at the picture!

Next you’ll pour in the liquids, rice, and the seasonings and then set it to boil and simmer for 30 minutes. THAT’S IT!! Dinner is served!! It’s an easy one pot meal and we love to serve it alone side a baguette. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!

Here are some tips for making the One Pot Sausage Peppers with Rice:

  • Use a non-stick pan. Rice is starchy and as it cooks it can get sticky. Using a non-stick pan will help with the clean-up!
  • Use a pot with high sides. Rice grows to about 3 times its size when cooked. So make sure you have enough room in the pot!
  • Have all the liquids, rice, and seasonings measured out before you start cooking. I just use measuring cups and set them aside. That way when it’s time to add things you have then ready. I don’t like to be frantically measuring and pouring things while have a screaming hot pan on the stove.
  • If you have picky little ones (like me), cut the veggies super small so they can’t be detected by picky little eaters. 🙂

  • 4 large garlic cloves - minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat and add the onions, peppers, and sausage. Saute for about 7 minutes or until the onions and sausage have slightly browned. 

  2. Add in the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. 

  3. Add in the tomato sauce, chicken broth, rice, and seasonings. Bring to a full boil then reduce the heat to low. 

  4. Cover the pot and cook on low for 25 minutes. (I like to stir it half way through this to make sure it's not sticking to the pot.)

      Yes! You could easily make it vegetarian by omitting the sausage and using vegetable stock. 🙂
