Summertime means easy meals I can throw together quickly but still deliver on flavor and freshness. Which is why I love the convenience and high-quality ingredients in Aidells® sausage. They deliver all-natural, no artificial ingredients, and no nitrites in their chicken sausage products.
I was able to get all the ingredients for these fajitas, including Aidells® Cajun Links, at my local Albertsons. I love how easy it is to navigate through the store on my grocery trips, so I can get everything in one swoop.

I made these Cajun fajitas on a sheet pan in the oven, however, you can also use a grill pan and cook everything on the grill.
For the Cajun fajitas, you’ll need – 1 package of Aidells® Cajun Links, Red and Green Bell Peppers, and a white onion.
For the roasted corn salsa, you’ll need – 2 cobs of Fresh Corn, ( I used 4 to have extra corn for my kids), chopped red onion, (I had pickled red onions on hand and used those), jalapeño, cilantro, and fresh lime juice.
How to Make the Roasted Corn Salsa
A fresh summer corn salsa pairs perfectly with the spicy Cajun fajitas. It's sweet, crunchy, and has a burst of freshness from the lime juice. I love the flavor you get out of roasting or grilling corn, my preferred way to do Mexican street corn.
Once the corn is roasted, allow it to cool a little, then shave the kernels into a bowl. I like to use a bundt pan and place the cob in the middle, and the kernels fall right into the pan. Easy and mess-free!
Then mix with chopped red onion, or pickled red onions, diced jalapeños (with seeds for extra spice), chopped cilantro, a pinch of salt, and the juice from 1 lime.
Mix everything together and taste to see if more salt or lime is needed. Keep in the fridge until ready to use. I had leftovers and ate the corn salsa with some tortilla chips, so good!
How to Make the Cajun Fajitas
Slice the Cajun links and place on the same sheet pan you roasted the corn on. Slice red and green bell peppers along with the onion. Add them to the other side of the sheet pan and drizzle with some oil.
Toss everything together and roast in a 400ºF oven for 30 minutes. You can also turn on the broiler for the last couple minutes if you like your peppers and onions to have some char to them.
Assemble the Fajitas
I used small flour tortillas from Albertsons, and warmed them in the oven from the residual heat. Keep your tortillas warm in a clean kitchen towel, wrapped in foil, or in a tortilla warmer.
Build your fajitas with the peppers and onions on the bottom, the sliced Cajun links, and top with the roasted corn salsa.
If you want a low carb version, skip the tortillas and use lettuce leaves, or make a bowl with cauliflower rice on the bottom. Either way you serve it, they are delicious!
You can find Aidells Cajun links at your local Albertsons year-round and enjoy Cajun fajitas whenever the craving hits!
