Step 1

Place a large skillet on a stove over medium-high heat, then add in the Italian sausage, and break them apart. Cook the sausage until it starts to turn brown, then add the peppers, give them a good mix, and cook for about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add the garlic, salt, oregano, pepper, and cumin, then stir well, and cook for another 1 minute. Pour in the broth, then scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan, add in the salsa, and give them a good mix to combine.

Step 3

Rinse the rice under cold water, then make sure to strain off all the excess water, and transfer the rice to the skillet. Stir everything well until combined, then bring it to a simmer, and cover the skillet with the lid.

Step 4

Reduce the heat to medium, then simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the rice is cooked through. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top, then cover the pan with the lid, and turn off the heat. Allow it to rest for around 5 minutes, then serve, and enjoy!
