Crock-Pot Sausage Spanish Rice

  • 1 lb fully cooked kielbasa or Polish sausage, sliced
  • 2, 14.5 oz  cans diced tomatoes (don’t drain)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked converted rice
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1 can chopped green chiles (optional)
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • (or 1 tsp cumin,
  • 4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp/4 cloves minced garlic)

(Sometimes I add a can of beans, use beans instead of meat, double the meat, or make it quicker by using cans of tomatoes with onions and peppers already in them.  This recipe will take lots of substitutions.  When making for those who are not vegetable lovers, you can put the veggies in the blender first, they will never know what’s in it.)

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.  Stir.  Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 2-3, until rice is tender.  Makes 9 servings

Here’s another delicious crockpot recipe. This one is for crockpot spare ribs. Who knew you could could them in your slowcooker?
