This recipe was not very flavorful as a lot of Cooking Light recipes can be. We also found it oily, even though I did follow the directions exactly. My husband doesn't have issues with peppers, but we had it for lunch and this recipe talked back to him all day, even after we ate dinner.
We make this often with a few tweaks and it is quite delicious! I do not remove the sausage after browning, I add beef granules instead of broth (1tsp) + 12 oz water, cut back on the thyme to 1/2 t, and usually 3 chipotles. I also use fresh peppers (1 green or a mix of jalapeno/poblano/anaheim). Salt/pepper to taste.
This recipe was very bland. The only change I made was that I used fresh peppers. It tasted like nothing. I had to add salt and lots of other spiced to make it palatable. I would not make this again.
We really enjoy this recipe. I add 1 tsp of ground coriander to make it more flavorful. I also often use instant brown rice in place of white rice to make it healthier. Easy filling recipe!
