Chili Beans and Potatoes

Beans and Potatoes

When I’m tired after a long session of studying, this easy recipe always perks me up. And of course, it’s got hot and spicy sausage!

I like to cook sausage right when I bring it home so I can freeze it. I can just pull the cooked sausage out of the freezer and add it to whatever I am making that night for dinner. It’s a fast and easy way to get some protein into just about any meal!

So I thought I’d continue the April Fools’ Day theme by suggesting you take a listen to “My Foolish Heart” sung by Frank Sinatra and remember it is never foolish to prepare ahead!

Chili Beans and Potatoes


  • 4 whole potatoes, cooked
  • 2 cups hot and spicy sausage, cooked
  • 1 can chili beans (15 ounces)
  • 1 cup hot pepper cheese, grated
  • Tortilla chips (optional)


  1. Peel and cube potatoes onto four plates.
  2. Put ½ cup cooked hot sausage over each potato.
  3. Divide chili beans evenly four ways. Put each portion over the sausage on the potatoes.
  4. Heat each plate individually in the microwave on power 4 for two minutes or until heated through.
  5. Sprinkle ¼ cup grated hot pepper cheese over each plate.
  6. Serve with tortilla chips on the side.
