This Cajun Sausage and Rice Skillet is a flavorful and easy one-pan meal that’s perfect for a busy weeknight. Andouille sausage, bell peppers, and Cajun seasoning come together with rice in a delicious and satisfying dish.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 14 ounces andouille sausage, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (undrained)
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • Chopped green onions, for garnish (optional)


Sauté the Sausage: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned.

Sauté the Vegetables: Add the onion, bell peppers, and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until softened.

Add Garlic and Seasonings: Stir in the garlic and Cajun seasoning and cook for 1 minute more, until fragrant.

Simmer the Rice: Add the diced tomatoes, rice, and chicken broth to the skillet. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked through and the liquid is absorbed.

Serve: Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork. Garnish with chopped green onions, if desired.


  • You can substitute another type of sausage for the andouille sausage, such as kielbasa or smoked sausage.
  • If you like your food extra spicy, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the Cajun seasoning.
  • For a vegetarian option, you can omit the sausage and add additional vegetables, such as corn or peas.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
