Spicy Chorizo Sausage Fajitas

I am a big fan of fajitas.  Typically I make chicken, shrimp or veggie fajitas here at The Cottage Home, but this week I decided to try something new – Spicy Chorizo Sausage Fajitas!  If you’ve never tried chorizo, you can find it in most local grocery stores these days.  It sort of has the consistency of ground beef, but is a little drier due to the fact that there are many herbs and spices mixed in (especially chili powder).  If you are looking to add something new to your cooking repertoire – give these a try!!

Spicy Chorizo Sausage Fajitas

1lb. Mexican Chorizo Sausage
Flour Tortillas
1 Poblano Pepper
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Yellow Onion
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 tsp. Fajita Seasoning


Cook chorizo over medium heat until cooked through.

Meanwhile, slice peppers and onions.

Once chorizo is cooked, removed from saute pan.  Add peppers and onions and saute in the oil that was left from the sausage – this adds tons of flavor!  Also, add fajita seasoning.

While onions and peppers are cooking, slice your cooked chorizo sausage.

Add sliced chorizo to the cooked onions and peppers.  Saute for 1-2 minutes.

Now it is time to assemble your fajitas.  Place a spoon-full of sausage, peppers, & onions onto each tortilla.  Top with cheddar cheese, fresh salsa, sour cream, green onions, and fresh cilantro.

And there you have it – Spicy Chorizo Sausage Fajitas!  Serve with tortilla chips, salsa and sour cream.  Garnish with fresh cilantro.

Cottage Mama’s Note:  When I sliced into my red bell pepper for this recipe, it had gone to the dark side, so that is why you don’t see the red bell pepper.  Mexican rice and beans would also be delicious with this meal.
*PS: To keep your herbs fresher longer, try placing them in a glass of water and then storing them in the fridge – kind of like fresh flowers.
