  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • ½ cup onion (diced)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (minced)
  • 2 cups bell peppers (diced)
  • 14.5 oz petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon oregano (dried)
  • ½ teaspoon basil (dried)
  • 2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup instant rice
  • 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese (shredded)


  • Cook sausage in a large pot. Drain fat and return to stove top. Add diced onion and bell peppers and cook until tender.
  • Add petite diced tomatoes and tomato sauce to the pot. Then add all seasonings. Mix well then add chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce, and rice. Mix rice in well.
  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook covered for 10 minutes or until rice is tender. Mix in 1 cup of shredded cheese and cover again. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Top with remaining ½ cup cheese and serve.


  • Tip: For this recipe, I used instant rice. Using non-instant will change the cooking time.
