Salchichas blancas con tomate

Sausages in tomato sauce


  • 750 g - 1 kg pork, chicken, or turkey sausages ("salchicha blanca" or "longaniza" type, not the red ones, as they are spicy)
  • 1 large can stewed, puréed tomatoes (about 820 g tomate triturado NOT tomate frito)
  • olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin or cumin seed


Heat on high just enough olive oil to cover the bottom of a skillet. Add the tomato sauce and cumin and cook, covered, until the tomato sauce begins to change to a more orangey color. Add the sausages and simmer, covered, on medium-low heat until the sausages are cooked through, about twenty to thirty minutes. Salt to taste if desired.

Serve with fried potatoes and plenty of good bread. Makes enough for four people.
