I'm so sad these are gone already! I decided to do things a little different this time and it turned fantastic! I usually do this the traditional way in a pot, make everything separate, season it, yada! Not this time.
(My manager actually went home the other day to make this because she liked it so much after I gave her a taste! She used turkey italian sausage, which is also an option.)
I took the italian sausage out of the casing and browned it like any other ground meat. I had some leftover frozen pico de gallo, I added that. I added some frozen cilantro and once everything was thawed I added the beans. I strained the red beans but not the black. I heated the beans through and that was pretty much it. I only added a slight sprinkling of California blend garlic pepper seasoning because I couldn't imagine having a dish that was not seasoned at all! (it truly didn't need it, I was OCD-ing). It tasted so good I never got around to making any rice to go with it. I suggest using brown rice to make it extra healthy. White rice or yellow rice (rice with turmeric or saffron) are also very good!
I use 0% Greek Yogurt (predominantly Chobani or Fage) because I can not have sour cream.
*Lactose free people, for whatever reason through a ton of trial and error I found I can have just about "any" 0% no/non fat dairy product if it doesn't say "lactose free"
