Southwest Kielbasa Bowls

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

    Hubby and I enjoyed this delicious recipe tonight. Super easy to prepare, it is a 5-star winner. I made no changes except to halve the recipe for the two of us. We will be having this recipe again. Volunteer Field Editor

    My husband and I did not think we would like this, but it is surprisingly good for so few ingredients. Makes a healthy, quick supper.

    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.
