I make a sausage, rice, corn base that is seasoned with dry Ranch dressing seasoning. The rice is even great as a side dish. You’ll love this flavor packed dish!

You can go lighter on the rice so that the ratio of sausage is greater. Whatever your preference. I’ve also added diced tomatoes, green chilies and salsa to the mix. You can get creative with your family’s favorite ingredients.
