  • 1
    In 4-quart saucepan, mix rice and water. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2
    Stir in salsa, sausage, peas and corn. Cook uncovered 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until corn is tender and mixture is thoroughly heated.

Expert Tips

The salsa is added after the rice is cooked because the acid from the tomatoes can prevent the rice from becoming tender.

A mixed fresh-fruit salad and corn muffins are tasty accompaniments for this meal.
