Smoked Sausage Fajitas

Servings: 6

Ingredients:

1-pound jalapeno or chili flavored smoked sausage
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and sliced in very thin strips
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and sliced in very thin strips
1/2 cup chopped green onion
6 (8-inch) whole wheat or multi-grain flour tortillas, warmed
3/4 cup chunky salsa
3/4 cup shredded crisp lettuce
3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

Extra Toppings
Low-fat sour cream
Guacamole

Directions:

  1. Slice sausage in half and then cut each half to make sausage strips that are 1/2-inch long. Slice strips into 3-inch lengths.
  2. Heat oil in a large, heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add peppers and saute about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add onions and saute for 2 additional minutes.
  3. Add sausage strips and saute for 2 more minutes, stirring frequently. Cook until vegetables are crisp-tender and sausage strips are hot.
  4. Spoon equal portions down middle of each heated tortilla. Top sausage mixture with 2 tablespoons each salsa, lettuce and cheese. Add extra toppings, if desired, and roll up tortillas.
