I love it when peppers are on sale! It means I get to create some fantastic pepper recipes and share them with you!
This recipe is great because it’s easy to customize based on what you have on hand or what’s on sale. Around here peppers can get quite pricy so it’s nice to know if you only want to use green peppers you can. If red peppers are the only one’s on sale, grab those!
Personally I prefer the visual of having several different colors of peppers in my dish. It’s like a rainbow on my plate!
I used andouille sausage for this recipe, however if you’d rather use a different kind of sausage go for it. I love the flavor of this sausage so it’s become a favorite for any sausage and peppers recipe I make.
Also, if you don’t want to include the chicken you can leave that out as well, however I just like the variety. I could also see this being fantastic by adding in some grilled shrimp.
This recipe is fantastic served as is, or on top of pasta, rice, or right alongside burgers and brats for a backyard BBQ.
