  • 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


  • 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.
  • Add sliced bell peppers, onion and poblano pepper to the skillet; let cook until the onion is translucent.
  • Add sausage to the large skillet with the peppers and onions and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour in diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and spices. Mix well.
  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Taste and adjust spices as desired.
  • 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.
