Meal Planning: 6 Dinners on a Budget
#4 Quick Sausage Fajita Wraps continued...
1 bell pepper (any color), cut in half and thinly sliced ($1)
1 package Turkey Polska Kielbasa such as Hillshire Farm, cut into 4 pieces and then cut each of those pieces in half lengthwise ($2.49)
1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar or jack cheese ($1.87)
8-multigrain soft taco tortillas ($3.55)
Fresh, in-season fruit ($4)
In large, nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, saute onion and bell pepper in canola oil until golden. Push the vegetables to the side of the skillet to keep warm and lay the sausage pieces, cut side down, onto the center of the skillet. Cook until the sausage is lightly brown. Start warming up one of the tortillas in a medium nonstick skillet, lay one of the sausage pieces in the center of the tortilla, and sprinkle about 1/8 cup of the cheese over the top along with 1/8 of the onion and bell pepper mixture. Fold the sides of the tortilla over to wrap up the sausage and vegetables. Serve sausage wraps with fresh fruit and mustard if desired.
