Here's one of my husband's favorite dishes. When it's in season, substitute fresh corn for frozen. Add a dash of cayenne pepper if you like a little heat. —Sheila Gomez, Shawnee, Kansas

"This is probably one of the fastest meals I've ever made and I even doubles the recipe. It's surprising how much flavor you can get out of so few ingredients."

"I just made this for my son and his girlfriend. We all loved it! My only adjustment was increasing the amount of sausage to one pound. And they liked shredded cheese on it."

"The chicken broth I had on hand had gone bad so I used beef broth instead. Still tasted good! Both my husband and I agreed that it could use just a bit more meat. Next time I will cut the kielbasa slices in half. I may also back off on the beans a bit. I also found that it needed something extra. Maybe just a bit more salt or some other spice. Either way, I'll be making this again. Very easy!

Update: I made this again tonight with a few changes. I used fresh sweet red pepper instead of the roasted, and cooked it with the onions. I used the same amount of meat but cutting it in half really helped disperse it out more. I did back off the beans a little like I thought I should and that was great! Instead of brown rice, I actually used long grain and wild rice I had leftover in the fridge (which I had made with the seasoning packet). The flavor of the rice with the other spices was GREAT!!! I think I'll be making it with that kind of rice from now on."
