Sausage, Kale, White Bean Stew

This is a wonderful fall dish. I like to call this "cozy" food. The nice thing about this is that you can tailor it to your tastes. We like spicy food so I crank up the heat factor but you needn't do that and it would still be lovely.

3/4 lb hot turkey sausage ( or mild)
1 bunch kale, ribs removed and coarsely chopped
1 onion thinly sliced
1/2 large red pepper, sliced
2 large cloves of garlic sliced
3/4 cup chicken broth
salt, pepper, and dried red pepper ( I basically put a few shakes of dried red pepper in everything I cook)
1 can white beans, rinsed and drained

In large skillet with lid, brown sausage for a five minutes or so, add onion and red pepper and cook maybe five more minutes. Start adding kale, do it in bunches as it cooks down. Add salt, pepper, and dried red pepper. Add the chicken broth, cover and cook five minutes. Add the beans, stir and cover for about five more. You can hold here on a simmer.

This dish is good with cornbread. I made a basic corn bread from a mix, added cheddar cheese and jalapenos and baked in a small cast iron skillet. Yum!
