  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 links Farmer John Louisiana Style Chicken Sausage sliced
  • 2 medium zucchini cut into ½ inch dice
  • ½ cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 cup quick cooking brown rice
  • 1 ¼ cups low sodium chicken stock
  • ¾ cup fresh salsa drained
  • 1 - 14 oz. can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime cut into quarters


  • In a medium sized lidded pan, heat the 1 tsp. of vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add the sausage and cooked for 2 - 3 minutes. Turn sausage over and cook for another 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Add the zucchini and corn and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until the vegetables are slightly caramelized. Sprinkle with cumin. Add the rice and stir. Pour in the chicken stock and the salsa and stir. Bring mixture to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cover the pan and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Divide between 4 bowls/plates and garnish with green onions, cilantro and lime wedges.


I used a mild salsa but if you like things spicier, use a medium or hot salsa! This dish also re heats very well - if making ahead, cool the sausage and rice mixture, cover and refrigerate.
