This Sweet ‘N Spicy Jalapeno Sausage Fried Rice recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes thanks to the short ingredient list and the use of fully pre-cooked sausages and chicken breast. The sweet flavor of pineapple combined with the spicy flavor from the jalapeno sausages is guaranteed to have you coming back to this recipe again and again.
If you’ve been hanging around here for a while, then you know that one thing we really love is sausages because they pack in so much flavor. The other thing we love? Time-saving tricks to make sure that we don’t spend all day meal prepping. Buying fully pre-cooked sausages like the ones we used here from al fresco take this recipe from 45-50 minutes to less than 30 minutes. More flavor + saving time? Where do we sign up?
Sweet ‘N Spicy Jalapeno Sausage Fried Rice is a spin-off of a family favorite, Chicken Hawaiian. The original recipe calls for peppers, onion, chicken, pineapple, and cream of chicken soup. However, we didn’t have any cream of chicken soup on hand (do people even buy that anymore?), so we decided to forgo the soup and add in some spicy al fresco jalapeno sausages for extra flavor instead!
Boy, did we make the right move with that swap! The sweet pineapple works so nicely with the kick from the spicy jalapeno chicken sausages. Finished off with fresh cilantro and lime, it’s like a trip for your taste buds.
