The skillet is a truly remarkable culinary invention: a single pan that has the ability to bring together lots and lots of flavors. Tonight, you’ll be using it to make a Cajun-inspired meal of dirty rice, sautéed bell pepper and onion, crumbly pork sausage and melty Monterey Jack cheese. It’s all topped with a refreshing parsley crema that comes together in one bowl. The next best part of the meal after eating it? Barely having to do the dishes when you’re done.

• Wash and dry produce. • Core, deseed, and dice bell pepper into ½-inch pieces. Halve, peel, and dice half the onion (whole onion for 4 servings) into ½-inch pieces. Dice tomato into ½-inch pieces. • Remove sausage* from casing; discard casing.


• Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium, preferably nonstick, pan over medium- high heat (use a large pan for 4 servings). Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned, 3-4 minutes (it’ll finish cooking later). • Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a paper-towel-lined plate, keeping as much oil in pan as possible.


• Heat another drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and diced onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.


• Add rice, diced tomato, tomato paste, Cajun Spice, ½ tsp salt (1 tsp for 4 servings), and a pinch of pepper to pan with veggies. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds. • Add stock concentrates and 1½ cups water (3 cups for 4) to pan and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced by half, 3-4 minutes. • Return sausage to pan. Cover pan and reduce heat to low; cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. TIP: Add a splash of water if pan seems dry.


• While rice cooks, pick parsley leaves from stems; finely chop leaves. • In a small bowl, combine sour cream with half the chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency.


• Stir remaining chopped parsley into rice skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with Monterey Jack and parsley crema. • Divide between plates and serve.
