  • 1 pound chicken Italian sausage (I use sweet, but you can substitute hot if desired)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 bell peppers (mixed colors make it pretty, but are not crucial)
  • 1 medium yellow onion (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 15 ounce can red kidney beans (rinsed)
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • salt and pepper (if desired)


  • Brown the sausage over medium heat. Once it is browned, cut it into small pieces, add the water to the skillet, and cover and cook until done.
  • While the sausage is cooking, seed and slice the peppers into strips. Cut the strips in half.
  • Set aside the sausage, keeping any water and drippings in the skillet from the sausage cooking.
  • Add the olive oil and warm over medium heat. Add the pepper strips and onion and cook until tender (about 6-8 minutes). Add the garlic and cook for another minute or two.
  • Add the sausage, beans, tomatoes (and their juice), cumin, and wine to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
