Spicy Yellow Rice & Smoked Sausage Haiku: "Title's misleading. Depends on type of salsa. But it was still good." I was actually surprised that this turned out tasty (like a Southern stir-fry w/ the nice flavor and moisture addition of salsa - didn't really see the point to that tiny bit of Italian Seasoning, but I used it anyways.) Made mine w/ basmati rice (crushed a little saffron in it, in the hopes that it'd turn yellow, but oh well, rice is rice.) As salsa is pretty much the main flavor addition, I can only imagine that this recipe could be blah as can be, or kicky, or tame, all depending on what type of salsa one uses. The instructions and timing were pretty dead-on, so for a quick meal, I'd call it a success.

This was really tasty and easy to make! I did change it by using only one bell pepper and one onion, which was more than plenty, I can't imagine using four bell peppers and two onions, it would have been way too much! I also used only 8 oz of the 16 oz jar of salsa, which seemed perfect to us. I think it would have been even better with fresh salsa. My husband loved it, we will be making it again!

Great recipe! I added homemade sofrito and used Goya Adobo seasoning instead of italian seasoning. Also added chopped cilantro at end for extra flavor.
