Unless you like things hot, one chipotle will probably be enough. Don't be tempted to skip the 10 minutes of standing time in this recipe, though; it's necessary for the rice to soak up all the flavorful juices.

Instructions Checklist
  • Remove the casings from the sausage. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add the sausage; cook 7 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Remove from the pan, and drain.

  • Add the pepper stir-fry mix and the remaining ingredients to the pan, and bring mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender. Remove from heat, and stir in the sausage. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Note: Store remaining chipotles in an airtight container; freeze for later use.
