Saute sausage for 10 minutes over medium heat, then crumble it up. Now add the remaining ingredients, stir, cover and cook until potatoes are done.

Serve it Up!

Add a Pinch of Imagination and a Sprinkle of Creativity! (variations)

Veggie eaters, don’t despair you can have a taste too. Simply take out the pork sausage and add a few colorful vegetables like red pepper, green beans, and any other veggie you love.

And for meat eaters, mix it up a bit, instead of pork sausage use chicken sausage, and I’ve even had Picadillo with Tuna. That’s the beauty of this dish, you can add whatever you want to it.
