Spicy Brown Rice with Sausage and Peppers cooks together in the slow cooker for a delicious dinner that spicy sausage fans will love! And this amazing dish has a lot of sausage and peppers and not too much rice, so it’s surprisingly not that high in carbs if you eat it for a side dish.
This Slow Cooker Spicy Brown Rice with Sausage and Peppers from Kalyn’s Kitchen is a delicious dinner option you’ll make over and over. I don’t mind chopping some sausage, peppers, and onions and browning them for a few minutes before they go in the slow cooker when I can end up with a dish as delicious as this, and I loved this recipe.
And this might make a good dinner on a day when you don’t think about what to cook until mid-afternoon, because after about 25 minutes to chop and saute the sausage, peppers, and rice, you can relax for the next two hours while the rice cooks unattended in the slow cooker!
