Call this one an update of that favorite combo, sausage and peppers. Our healthy version can be served over rice or on a roll with a little shredded cheese for a new take on a Philly cheese steak sandwich. Source: EatingWell Magazine, August/September 2005

This was quick and easy and VERY tasty! I doubled up on the veggies and added 2 TBS of chicken broth. Served over brown rice the tangy-ness of the jalapenos was an excellent taste sensation. I'm definitely adding this one to my "need a healthy dinner fast" recipe favorites. Read More

This was excellent even lacking a few of the ingredients. I didn't have jalapeno or onion on hand so I omitted and upped the amount of peppers using a variety of colors. Also used chicken breasts chunks rather than tenders but it worked fine. I also served over brown rice but I use chicken broth rather than just water to improve the taste of the rice. Will definitely make again. Read More
