Paprika Mixup

1 c. brown rice
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium chicken breast, sliced into thin strips
1 italian sausage link, sliced on bias into thin pieces
1 small onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 c. cut fresh green beans
3 large carrots, julienned
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
dash cumin
dash chili powder

Prepare rice as directed.
When rice has about 15 minutes remaining, continue. Pour oil into a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once heated, add chicken and brown on all sides. Add sausage and onions. Cook 3-4 minutes or until onion begins to soften. Add garlic, paprika, cumin, chili powder and salt to taste. Add 1/4 cup warm water. Add in green beans and stir to combine. Cook 2-3 minutes, then stir in carrot. When rice is done, combine it in the pan with the rest of the ingredients, stir to allow the rice to absorb some of the flavors, and serve!
