Sausage, Beans and Rice is a hearty and satisfying dish for cooler weather.
Canned red beans or chili beans
Sausage of your choice. I like smoked sausage.
Canned diced tomatoes (fire roasted are good) or tomato sauce
Season as desired -
red pepper flakes
Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (love this stuff)
Whatever seasoning you would like to add.

Grated cheddar cheese.
Heat olive oil in large skillet.
Rough chop bell pepper and onion and add to heated skillet.
Slice sausage. Add to skillet.
After browning a few minutes add the garlic.
Add tomatoes and beans.
Add seasonings to taste.
Decrease heat, cover and simmer stirring occasionally.
Cook rice and grate cheese.
Soon it will look like this.
Plate with rice and grated cheese.
For a little "heat" add Tabasco.
Serve with a slice of cornbread. Enjoy.
