Updated August 16, 2016


  • 1 lb. chorizo or Italian sausage, casing removed if necessary
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, seeded, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 (15-oz.) can Joan of Arc®, Old El Paso™ or Progresso™ Black Beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 (14 1/2-oz.) can ready-to-serve chicken broth
  • 1 (14.5-oz.) can Mexican stewed tomatoes with jalapeños and spices, undrained, cut up
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 4 oz. (1 cup) shredded Cheddar cheese


  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Crumble sausage into 12-inch nonstick skillet. Add bell pepper and onions; cook over medium-high heat until sausage is browned, stirring occasionally. Drain.
  • 2
    Stir in all remaining ingredients except cheese. Spoon into ungreased 13 x 9-inch (3-quart) baking dish. Cover tightly with foil.
  • 3
    Bake at 375°F. for 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until rice is tender. Remove from oven; sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven; bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  • Chorizo is a highly-spiced pork sausage used in Mexican and Spanish cooking. Garlic and chili powder flavor the coarsely-ground pork.
  • Kidney beans can be used in place of the black beans. Southwestern-style stewed tomatoes can be substituted for the Mexican stewed tomatoes.
  • To keep the casserole warm at the table, place the dish in an insulated casserole holder. Serve the spicy casserole with warm tortillas and sour cream.
