  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 (15-ounce) cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (16-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can stewed tomatoes, undrained and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Warm cooked rice
What To Do:
  1. Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and next 3 ingredients, and saut 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add beans and next 6 ingredients.

  2. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Serve over rice.
