  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1/2 poblano pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 4 (cooked) chicken sausage links (I used a mix of spicy Italian and andouille), sliced (see note)
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin, more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili power, more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (optional)


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds or just until fragrant.
  2. Add sliced bell peppers, onion and poblano pepper to the skillet; let cook until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add sausage to the large skillet with the peppers and onions and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour in diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and spices. Mix well.
  5. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Taste and adjust spices as desired.
  7. Serve over spaghetti squash, cauliflower rice, or gluten-free pasta!


If you are using uncooked chicken sausage, remove the casing and cook the chicken sausage and garlic together in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until the sausage is brown on both sides. This should take around 5 minutes, stirring often.
