Make Rice and Prep

Adjust rack to top position and preheat broiler to high. Wash and dry all produce. In a medium pot, combine rice, 1½ cups water, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, halve, peel, and thinly slice onions. Halve, core, and deseed peppers, then dice. Dice tomatoes. Zest limes until you have 1 tsp; quarter limes.

Make Crema and Salsa

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine sour cream, juice from 2 lime wedges, a pinch of salt, and enough water to give mixture a drizzling consistency (start with 1 TBSP water). In another small bowl, combine tomatoes, 1 tsp lime zest, a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of salt, and the juice from 2 lime wedges.

Cook Sausage and Veggies

Heat 2 TBSP oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use an ovenproof pan if you have one). Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, about 1 minute. Add onions, peppers, and Southwest Spice. Cook, stirring, until lightly browned and sausage is cooked through, 5-7 minutes more.

Add Rice

Add rice, stock concentrates, 2 TBSP butter, and ⅓ cup water to pan with sausage and veggies. Stir to thoroughly combine.

Melt Cheese

(TIP: If pan isn’t ovenproof, transfer mixture now to a baking dish.) Top sausage mixture with cheese and broil until cheese is bubbly, 2-3 minutes.


Top sausage mixture with crema and salsa. Drizzle with hot sauce if desired. Serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side for squeezing over.
