Hey guys!!  Okay it now officially fall!!  Time to break out the sweaters and boots, the fireplace and the quilts, and oh yeah all that warm comforting food to banish that nip in the air.

Usually when you think of hearty, comforting fall meals you imagine meals that cook all day and can be a little bit involved.  That doesn’t mesh well with the busy lifestyle most of us lead.

So how about I share with you a quick heart dinner you can make in a snap using Success® Whole-Grain Brown Rice?  I just love the texture of the brown rice and it’s nutty flavor and with the boil-in-bag method it is guaranteed perfect every time.  You can use this delicious rice in anything from casseroles to soups.  But today I will show you how to make a quick dinner with the brown rice, smoked sausage and black eyed peas, yum!!

I just saute up some green bell pepper with a little onion.

Peppers and onions

Then toss in some sliced smoked sausage and let that get a little color.


Add in a little butter for flavor.

Boil up my Success® Whole-Grain Brown Rice which only takes 10 minutes to cook.


Add that to the pan and a can of black eyed peas.


A splash of hot sauce and dinner is done!

Doesn’t that just scream comfort? The beans and rice get all the yummy flavor from the sausage and pepper and onion, it is a winner!
