  • -Notes
  • I often slice the sausages towards the end (in last hour) then return them to the pot so they go further for a large family
  • You can also serve with mashed potato
  • Sometimes I'll combine red and green capsicum, either or both are ok
  • I've also substituted burrito mix for fajita or taco mix
  • This recipe also featured in the book Slow Cooker Central FAMILY FAVOURITES available at the shop tab of this site

    I really enjoyed this meal. I didn’t have any capsicum on hand but did have all other ingredients. Was even more delicious the second night. I served brown rice with it

  2. I only used 6 snags, used fajita seasoning and red capsicum left out the corn but added pickled jalapenos because we like a bit of a kick. Served over mashed potatoes. It was a hit with my son and hubby so it gets a big tick at our house.

    This recipe was so easy, budget friendly and delicious. My fussy eater came back for seconds and a third serving. The whole family enjoyed them. Will definitely make again ❤️

  4. My family loved this recipe. I used Fajita seasoning because that’s what I had and it was delicious. Served it with rice

  5. Made this for the first time. It was just for 2 of us so only used 6 sausages, & 1 packet of burrito mix which was 25g. Also used frozen corn & frozen capsicum as I had it in the freezer & just 1 cup of water. It turned out amazing. Really tasty & great for something different. Husband loved it so thats a win. Will make again

  6. 5 stars
    “Absolute winner” were the words from my husbands mouth!
    Sounds like this will become a regular in our rotation.
    Followed the recipe as is – did take the lid off and cooked on high for the last hour to thicken the sauce.
