Fiesta Brown Rice w/Turkey Sausage

Submitted by: GRANPATTIE

Introduction

This is very easy if you have leftover brown rice cooked. You could use white but you'd sacrifice some nutrition. You could also substitute diced or shredded chicken, or drop the mean and add extra veggies. You could also try Boca Scrambles.

***The sodium is high in this. You can cut the sodium by using less salsa and/or dropping the Rotel, and adding some organic tomato sauce or low sodium V8 in it's place.
It would be further reduced by using chicken in place of the sausage.

Ingredients

    3 cups brown rice, cooked
    3 links of Jennio italian turkey sausage (or store brand)
    1 bag of Kroger Fiesta-style veggies, steam-fresh
    1/2 cup of black beans, well-rinsed if canned
    1 small can mild Rotel
    3/4 cup cooked Kroger Restaurant Style Salsa, medium
    Cumin ( to taste)
    Tone's Southwest Chiptle seasoning blend ( to taste)
    3/4 cup of shredded extra-sharp cheddar, 2%

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray. (You need enough room to hold approx. 8 cups and stir it together)

1. Cook the turkey sausage links until done. Remove casings and slice the links. Cut the slices in half.

2. Thaw or partially cook the fiesta veggies, to reduce excess water.

3. Rinse well the black beans to reduce salt.

4. Add all ingredients to the casserole dish, EXCEPT the cheese. Stir to mix thoroughly.

5. Place casserole in oven for 30 minutes.

6. Sprinkle cheese on top of casserole and put back in oven until cheese is melted. ""


Makes Approx. 8, 1-cup servings. """

"" 2% cheese will have a little less fat, but doesn't melt as well. Use your discretion.
