Sausage Fajita Stir fry
  1. Cut your onion in long slices (see picture above) and set aside
  2. Cut your pepper(s) in long slices (see picture above) and set aside.
  3. Heat your oil or ghee in a large skillet over medium heat and add your onions. Cook for 2-5 minutes until slightly soft, then add your peppers. Cook another 10 minutes until desired texture. I like mine nice and soft. Place on a large plate and set aside.
  4. Slice your sausage (or mushrooms if using those instead) and cook them over medium heat in the same pan you cooked the onions and sausage (add a little more oil if needed, but not too much). The sausage is already cooked, so you don’t need to worry about meat temperatures, just cook them until they are nicely browned on each side. This may take 5-10 minutes.
  5. Once sausage is browned, add the dry fajita mix and the water specified on the package (it’s usually 1/4 cup). Stir this in well and cook 5 minutes longer (you can also follow what the package says for cooking, some want you to bring it to a boil and then simmer. Then add your onions and sausage back to the pan and stir together well. Sometimes I add a little more water to make it more saucy for a salad. It makes for a good dressing on the lettuce. If you’re making fajitas, you may want to leave it as is so it’s not dripping out of your hands once you get your fajita folded.
  6. Slice and wash your romaine lettuce really well (see how and why above) and let dry. Use a salad spinner if you have one, it makes it really easy.
  7. Assemble your salad with lettuce, then sausage and peppers on top. Add what ever toppings desired (I highly recommend salsa – its affordable and you can save the rest for chips as a snack another day.) Or heat up some tortillas (read how to above) and pile your ingredients inside.
