  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 ring smoked sausage, cut into 1/4″ rounds
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 medium bell peppers, chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 cans (10.5 oz) cream of soup (chicken, celery, or mushroom)
  • 2 cups white uncooked long-grain rice
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • fresh parsley, for garnish


Step 1

Add 1 tbsp of oil and 2 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter melts, add the chopped sausage and cook it for five minutes until brown. After five minutes, add the chopped bell peppers, and chopped yellow onion. Cook for a few minutes until they all come together, then add 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp ground black pepper. Mix well.

Step 2

Next, add two cans of cream soup of your choice and 4 cups of chicken broth. Raise your heat to high and bring it to a boil. As it comes to a boil, add 2 cups of white uncooked long-grain rice. Mix it, turn the heat to low, and place the lid on. Cook for twenty minutes. After twenty minutes, turn off the stove and add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and stir it around. Now, sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top along with freshly chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy.
