Here's our at-home take on restaurant burrito bowls. We start with rice, kielbasa and black beans, then top 'em with salsa, red onion and cilantro. Use a spicier sausage if you want to crank up the heat. —Abby Williamson, Dunedin, Florida

"Surprisingly tasty given the lack of ingredients and seasoning! I used pork sausage and mix of fresh and jarred salsa. I wouldn't think twice about using only jarred in this recipe. Great weeknight meal when something fast is needed."
