Cooking Tips:

  • To save time, you can always buy prechopped onions and peppers at the grocery store.
  • You can use any color bell peppers you like, but I mainly like to go for red, orange, and yellow.
  • Get creative with the seasoning! You can add a few dashes of Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes to the veggies to enhance the flavor.

    Hi Melanie,

    Two nights ago I made Air Fryer Sausage And Peppers. I added salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. I also add a pack of sliced mushrooms. Everything came out delicious. The Italian sausages were cooked PERFECT! I also made your air fryer jalapeno poppers that were pretty good. Your Air Fryer Sausage and Peppers will be something that I’ll make every now and then. Thanks for the recipe!
