"This easy rice dish is a simplified takeoff of a Cooking Light risotto made with yellow bell peppers and sausage. The saffron rice mix gives the yellow color of the roasted bell peppers." --CL Reader

Spare an extra dash of salt with this turkey sausage to keep your sodium balance in check.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Step 2

Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon.

Step 3

Add corn and garlic to pan, and cook over medium heat 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in rice, sausage, cheese, chili powder, cumin, pepper, and salt. Reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.
