One Pot Dirty Rice and Beans with Smoked Sausage Recipe For Back-To-School Days

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of BUSH’S Beans. The opinions and text are all mine.

Back to school time is the busiest time of year, so anything that saves time is an asset for me. Since we also love home-cooked meals for dinner, and I still want to cook at home, I just look for easier ways to make nutritious, delicious meals on a time crunch. One pot meals save time with clean up and let me get everything we need (almost every food group) into one pot, so I always loved them and incorporate them into my meal planning every fall.

Today I’m sharing a favorite one pot meal that is incredibly delicious, and a hit with kids. It’s perfect for back-to-school time: my One Pot Dirty Rice and Beans with Smoked Sausage.
