i love this recipe, really tasty! towards the end i usually add philadelphia or mascarpone and stir in until melted. It gives a creamier taste.

This was nice. Good quick family mid-week meal. I didn't add the chilli powder till the end as i served my kids out first then added some chilli powder to what was left for myself and husband. Was nice, quick and no fuss to prepare.

Such a good recipe but I used frankfurter sausages the second time as that was all I had and it tasted even better!!!

Made this a number of times now. A great recipe for days when time isn't on your side. I fry the sausages whole, then cut them into chunks as I find it much easier than cutting up raw sausages. I use mild chilli powder because no-one likes spicy food in this house. Made it once using hot chilli powder and it nearly blew our heads off. Our toddler loves this which is an added bonus when looking for family meals to try.

New family favourite, 4 yo suggested adding kidney beans as she loves and would recommend :)

I use scissors to cut the sausages, much easier! I add some minced chilli instead of the powder. This recipe freezes well - I'm not a meat eater and like to cook in bulk for the family.
