This quick-cooking gumbo gets its heat and tang from "keep‘em on hand" bottled cherry peppers. It’s a great dish on its own or served over brown rice.

Ingredients

canned chopped onions

½ cup(s), (1 small)

sweet red pepper(s)

1 medium

distilled vinegar

2 tsp

minced garlic

½ tsp

canned pimento(s)

3 oz, or Cherry Peppers

uncooked chicken sausage(s)

1 oz, quartered lengthwise, diced

canned diced tomatoes

½ cup(s)

canned kidney beans

½ cup(s), Red

uncooked shrimp

4 large, peeled, deveined (16-20ct size)

fresh parsley

1 Tbsp, (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a small saucepan. Add onion and pepper and cook for 5 minutes, until slightly softened. Add garlic, cherry peppers, vinegar, and sausage and cook for additional minute (stand back from the pan! The vinegar cooking off is pretty strong). Add tomatoes, beans, and shrimp. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook for 5-6 minutes until shrimp are completely opaque. Stir in parsley and serve.

Notes

If spicy isn’t your thing use less (or no) cherry peppers in this dish. If you really like it hot leave the seeds in…but be warned!
