Celine’s Sausage with Peppers and Onions

We just got back from a visit with my mom and dad in Deming, New Mexico.  Mom is a great cook, always trying new things.  Every time we visit, she has new recipes to share.  (How nice is it to have your mom cook for you, right?)  This is my first visit since starting this blog, so I whipped out a little notebook and started snapping pictures every time she started cooking!  Today, we’re having sausage with peppers and onions–how yummy does this look?!

Gather a sausage and some fresh, colorful ingredients:

  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 lb smoked sausage  (this is turkey/pork)
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 bell peppers–all different colors!
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 5 roma tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste

Place olive oil in a pan over medium heat.  Thinly slice the onion, break into half-rings and add to the pan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thinly slice the peppers, add them to the onions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Saute peppers and onions until they start to soften.  Use a garlic press to add both cloves of garlic. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add salt and fresh-ground pepper.  Simmer for a minute or two to let the flavors meld.

Cut sausage on the bias into 1-inch pieces.  Add to the pan and stir to combine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While sausage heats, rough chop the tomatoes.  (No need to skin or seed them.)  Add them to the pan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stir to combine, reduce the heat and let the pan and all of its colorful, fragrant yumminess simmer for about 20 minutes.

While that simmers, I thought I’d share a couple pictures of my mom, Celine.  ❤

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

20 minutes up?  Time to serve!  Spoon it all into a pretty bowl, bring it to the table and serve family style.  Mom made salt potatoes to go with it this time (recipe coming soon!), but says it’s super yummy over rice or noodles as well.  I’m thinking polenta would also make a yummy accompaniment!

5 of us shared this meal and there were no leftovers!  (Except for a few salt potatoes that I hid in the fridge for later! Hee hee!)  So yummy, so pretty, so good for you!
