Sunny's Quickest Sausage "Gumbo" Ever

Total Time:
40 min
Prep:
5 min
Cook:
35 min

Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (fat doesn't count as an ingredient!)
  • 6 small or 4 large New Orleans-style or andouille sausage links, sliced into 3/4-inch ovals (rounds on the bias)
  • 1 cup frozen chopped fire-roasted peppers and onion blend, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning blend
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 4 to 6 cups prepared white rice, for serving
  • Your favorite hot sauce (but I prefer Crystal's here), for serving
Directions
  • In a large pot on medium heat, add the butter and sausage. Cook, stirring, until color and a light crust forms on most sides of the sausage, about 5 minutes. Add the pepper and onion blend and tomato paste and cook, stirring, until the bright red of the paste becomes a muted reddish brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the Cajun seasoning blend and cook it the same way as the tomato paste, ensuring the spices bloom and become fragrant. Add the stock, bring to a simmer and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.

  • Pour over prepared rice and hit with a shake of your favorite hot sauce.
