15-Minute Smoked Sausage Jambalaya

This is the recipe I'm probably the most "known" for. Chris and I made it for the first time New Year's Eve of '04 and it immediately became a favorite of our's. We've made it for a lot of our friends, and family over the past three years. And some of those friends and family are now even making it themselves!

It's not to be considered your "typical" jambalaya recipe as it's not really hot (although you could make it HOT if you wanted to), but it's really a hearty meal that fills you up and keeps you warm on a nice freezing cold day such as today!

And sidenote: The "15-minutes" in the title is a bunch of junk. That's probably just the prep time...the cooking time is obviously just a tad bit more than that!

Another sidenote: We usually double the recipe and it feeds 6 people depending on how much you put in the bowls!

15-Minute Smoked Sausage Jambalaya

1 cup instant rice
1 medium onion chopped
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
8 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 lb. of smoked sausage, cut into 2" pieces
1/2 cup of celery sliced
4 drops of hot pepper sauce (sub. taco sauce if desired - which is what we do because we're wussies)

Cook rice by directions on pkg. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add sausage, onion, and green
pepper and celery and saute until veggies are tender. Add tomatoes, hot pepper sauce and pepper.
Drain rice and stir into sausage mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly
