Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 6 ounces andouille sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced into 1/4-inch-thick pieces
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, diced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, 4 to 6 minutes. Add onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in paprika; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Add tomatoes, rice, and 3 cups water to skillet; cover, and simmer over medium heat until rice is cooked and has absorbed all water, about 15 minutes.
