  • 1 cup white rice (uncooked)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 14 ounce kielbasa (sliced)
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • salt to taste


  • Add rice, chicken broth, tomato paste, and seasonings to a small saucepan. Cover with lid and bring to a simmer. Simmer on low until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender.
  • While rice cooks sear the kielbasa in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Periodically flip the sausage to ensure it cooks evenly. Once seared and heated through, remove from skillet and set aside.
  • Add peppers and onions to the skillet and saute them in the leftover rendered fat from the kielbasa.*
  • Once peppers and onions are tender, add kielbasa back to the skillet along with the cooked rice. Mix together, taste for salt, and adjust as needed. Serve immediately.


*If there isn't enough rendered fat, add a tablespoon of butter or cooking oil as needed.
