Skillet Chili “Sloppy Dogs”

Here’s how the Sloppy Dogs went down. First, some red onions, zucchini, corn, red bell pepper, and Field Roast sausages headed into the skillet sauna. I love that Trader Joe’s has frozen roasted corn, instant smoky flavor!
Next, add in the spices, the beans, tomatoes, and a splash of water to get everybody moving and grooving together.
