Spanish Sausage Supper
"A pastor's wife shared her recipe for this colorful all-in-one skillet meal that she frequently brings to church dinners," writes subscriber Gene Pitts from Wilsonville, Alabama. "Hearty chunks of smoked sausage and canned tomatoes with chilies add just the right amount of zip to a packaged rice mix."
