Rice with Sausage and Black Beans

I absolutely love to dig through cookbooks and look for new things to make.  I happened upon a rice recipe that sounded really good, but it turned out even better.  The sausage and black beans, along with a little heat was simply wonderful.  Try this next time you fix ribs or chicken for a great side.
