- 1/2 package Premio Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage
- 1 pound shrimp, fresh and raw
- 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 heads Romaine lettuce, rinsed and chopped
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 1 large diced tomato
- 2 cups Mexican blend cheese
- 3 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 1 lime, quartered
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Tortilla chips
- 1/4 cup sour cream (optional)
Preheat your grill. Combine cumin, olive oil, salt and 1/2 tsp chili powder in a bowl, then set aside. Remove sausage meat from casings and set aside, then de-vein and de-shell the shrimp. Toss shrimp in the bowl with your olive oil mixture, coating completely.
Meanwhile, cook your sausage meat in a grill pan until browned and firm, breaking into small pieces and draining off some fat. Add shrimp to the pan and cook until pink and firm for about 5 minutes. Next, fill four serving bowls with equal portions of lettuce, black beans, tomato, cheese and red onion, adding a serving of shrimp and sausage and finishing off with squeezed lime juice, cilantro and crumbled tortilla chips. Top with sour cream if you like.
