The other day I found myself at 6pm with nothing defrosted for dinner and no plan. I usually have something in mind, but in the midst of record breaking heat in Texas, literally nothing sounded good.

I needed something easy and I needed something that would NOT heat up my kitchen.

I scrounged up a sausage link (just a super ordinary HEB sausage link!) and some rice and threw this yummy dish together within just a few minutes. It was definitely a WINNER!

You could add canned beans to this if you want. I would wait until after it cooks and then just stir the beans in. They should heat through quickly.
