These sausage-bean-rice bowls are definitely in Laddie’s top 5 comforting dinners. This is the kind of food he grew up eating on their ranch in Minnesota, which is where the name, Cowboy Bowls, comes from. It’s a warm, comforting bowl of rice topped with sausage, beans, and peppers and then splashed with hot sauce. This particular Cowboy Bowl was filled with Mayacoba beans, jasmine rice, and an array of hot & sweet peppers from our garden. . .Yum!
