14 ingredients

  1. 2 bay leaves $0.05
  2. 15 oz canned tomatoes
  3. 1/2 tsps cayenne pepper $0.05
  4. 1 lb chicken $2.99
  5. 4 cloves garlic $0.16
  6. 1/2 bunch parsley $0.35
  7. 2 cups rice $0.60
  8. salt and pepper $
  9. 1 lb sausage $3.99
  10. 12 oz seasoning mix
  11. 1/2 tsps thyme $0.05
  12. 2 tbsps tomato paste $0.19
  13. 4 cups water $0.00
  14. 1 $

Instructions

  1. Slice the sausage and cook in a large pot over medium heat until thoroughly cooked (about 5 minutes). Dont worry if the drippings begin to stick and coat the bottom of the pan, it will be deglazed later.
  2. Remove the cooked meat (leaving the fat/drippings in the pan) and set it aside for later.
  3. Add the chopped onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic to the pot with the meat drippings and cook until soft (about 3-5 minutes). The moisture from the vegetables should loosen anything stuck to the bottom of the pan from the meat (all of that flavorful good stuff).Once the vegetables have softened, add the dry rice, cayenne pepper and tomato paste. Stir it all together and cook for approximately 1 minute more. This will allow the tomato paste to caramelize and the rice to toast just slightly.
  4. Add 3.5 cups of water, diced tomatoes, bay leaves, thyme, fresh cracked pepper (about 20 cranks) and salt (about tsp). Stir it together, then add the meat back into the pot. Bring it up to a simmer, add a lid and reduce the heat to low. Allow the pot to simmer on low until all of the moisture has been absorbed by the rice (about 30 minutes). Stir in the chopped parsley and serve.
