  2. When we do our grocery last week, I was thinking on buying black beans but I don't know where to use it. Now, I know. Thanks for sharing this one.

    1. Its really good to combine the black beans and the sausage. Thank you, :)

  3. Bzzagent is an interesting site. It's good to be able to sample products in exchange for your honest opinion. I am not a fan of sausages, but eating some once in a while is ok. Adding vegetables makes it a healthier dish.

    1. I'm new to the site and loved it. I agree! putting some veggies on the dish make it healthier and my kids loved it. Thank you!:)

  4. Two things my husband loves, chilies and sausages. thanks for the recipe!

    1. You're welcome, Michelle. I hope you like the recipe:)

  10. I should have read this earlier so I know whatto do with the spicy sausage I have in the fridge. Well, I do have to skip the rice, though.
