Crockpot Sausage Peppers and Onions

This is my Sunday.... throw a bunch of stuff in the crockpot, let it cook 3-4 hours and sit back and enjoy my evening in front of the TV. This is also a great time to eat up some of the food in the fridge that needs to be cooked (like my tomatoes and peppers). 

Clean up is easy, if you have leftovers, just let it cool enough to put it in the refrigerator. (that's the interior of the crockpot, not the entire crockpot)

 I’m thinking of adding potatoes to this recipe. What do you think? Serves 4 Total Time: 3 hours 10 minutes


1-2 lbs of cooked sausage, cut into 1” pieces
3 bell peppers, seeded and sliced
1 onion, sliced
3 tomatoes, diced
15 oz can of crushed tomatoes
3-4 red potatoes, peeled and diced (optional)
1 tablespoon oregano
1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
Salt and pepper, to taste


Combine all ingredients together in your crockpot, stir to combine. Cook on high 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours. Serve. Yum Yum!

Can’t wait to try this? Then use the Instant Pot and it’s ready in 7 minutes!


Set the Instant Pot on sauté and add 2 teaspoons of oil (your choice). Add in the onions and peppers and sauté until softened. Stir in the remaining ingredients, close lid and seal vent. Select pressure on high for 7 minutes. Use the quick release method. Serve.
