Spicy Sausage and Black Bean Skillet

This is a quick, easy and healthy dish which works great as a weeknight meal and is awesome for a leftover lunch or mixed in with eggs for breakfast!  If you are not into spicy just sub your favorite mild chicken or turkey sausage and hold the chili peppers and spicy seasoning!


1 pound spicy chicken sausage (if on gluten-free diet use GF brand such as Trader Joes or Aidell’s)
2 red bell peppers, chopped (2 heaping cups)
1 white onion, chopped (1 cup)
2 Anaheim chili peppers finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon olive oil
One 14 ounce can of black beans, rinsed well and patted dry
1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth (*use a gluten-free brand such as Progresso Natural or Trader Joes if you are on a gluten-free diet)
A dash or two of Cajun seasoning (optional)


Add the 1 teaspoon olive oil to a large pan or pot and put in the sausage onions, bell peppers and chili peppers and sauté on medium-high heat until just starting to brown (about 7-10 minutes), stirring frequently. Then add the black beans (seasoning) and broth, cover to simmer, stirring occasionally until the broth has mostly evaporated and the whole mixture is brown and tender (about 5-7 minutes).
