2
large baking potatoes
1/4
lb. smoked turkey sausage
1/2
cup finely chopped onion
1/2
cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1
(14.5-oz.) can no-salt-added stewed tomatoes, undrained
1/2

  • 2 Meanwhile, cut sausage in half lengthwise; cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Heat medium nonstick saucepan over medium heat until hot. Add sausage, onion and bell pepper; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until sausage is browned, and onion and bell pepper are crisp-tender.

Tips  

Although "Creole" actually describes a distinctive Louisiana cuisine, the term was used as far back as in 19th century American cookbooks to name recipes containing a spicy mixture of tomatoes, bell peppers and onion.
