Add onion and cook until tender.  Add garlic and saute with the onion for another minute.  Add sliced sausage and cook until heated through.  Stir in tomato sauce, beans, chili powder and water.

  1. You're right! It's one of those quick and yummy meals that even the pickiest kid seems to like. :-)

  3. Sounds like a great dinner Tiffanee:@)

  4. Sounds delicious! I made a similar dish that uses macaroni rather than rice, but I am going to have to give this a try. I always seem to get good deals on smoked sausage and I don't have too many recipes for thanks :)

  5. This sounds fantastic! I'm adding all the ingredients to my shopping list right now!
