❤️ Why You'll Love This Recipe
There are two main reasons I love doing sheet pan meals:
✔ Simple to Prep Ahead
✔ Easy to Clean Up
First of all, I hate to do dishes - you too, right?!!
Secondly, this is a great meal you can prep ahead of time to save yourself a few minutes. Chop the peppers and onion and store them in the refrigerator. You can also slice the sausage ahead of time. I recommend dicing the potatoes juice before cooking, however.
💭 Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions (and answers!) readers often ask about this recipe.
Chorizo is a Mexican sausage that is made with cured and smoked pork and seasoned with Spanish paprika, which has a smoky flavor.
Garlic, oregano, cumin and coriander all go well with chorizo, but in this dish, I just used granulated garlic and ground cumin. Himalayan sea salt has a smokiness to it that I think pairs really well with this sausage dinner also.
- Chorizo Sausage - super flavorful, though you can also use chicken or Italian sausage.
- Potatoes - I recommend baby potatoes so you don't have to peel them.
- Orange and Yellow Bell Peppers - to add a nice sweet flavor.
