Cook N Class: Hot Cholula Dinner

 Hot Cholula Dinner (aka beans w/sausage and rice)


A recipe that is on my weekly rotation is what I call my Hot Cholula Dinner. It is very easy to make and super quick. The ingredients are easy to vary and substitute with whatever you prefer, or have on hand, or what is on sale. Which for me is usually the latter. As you will see in the photo below, I typically use HEB brand everything except for Cholula. If you don’t know about Cholula, I suggest you stop reading this blog, grab your keys, and head to the store to pick some up. I use this on several dishes, especially breakfast tacos. Learn more about Cholula here. As a said earlier, you can mix and match beans types, sausage varieties, and canned tomatoes with whatever you have on hand because ultimately it does not matter due to the fact that you are going to drown the dish with cholula once it is made.


Cholula Ingrediants


  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • bell pepper, chopped (not pictured)
  • 1 package sausage, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 can rotel
  • 1 can beans


Cook rice by boiling 2 cups of water, add rice, cover pot and simmer for 20 minutes. In a skillet, saute onion and bell pepper in olive oil on medium-high heat until soft.
Add sausage and flip it around for a little while, until it warms up and starts to brown.
Add rotel and beans with juices. I usually let this boil down a bit, so it is not too soupy. Reduce heat to low and stir it around, waiting for the rice to get done.
When rice is done, mix rice into bean/meat mixture in skillet.  Serve in bowls piping hot. Put Cholula on table for guests to pour desired amount onto dinner.
Burn mouth every time, don’t forget the water
