Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl add sliced sausage, sliced peppers, and sliced onion.

In a small bowl whisk together cornstarch, chili powder, kosher salt, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.

Sprinkle the spice mix over the sausage and peppers and stir to evenly coat.

Put half the mixture on each sheet pan, spread out into a thin layer and bake for about 15 minutes, stirring halfway, or until golden brown. If you want even browner color you can pop the trays under the broiler for a few minutes.

Serve on flour tortillas with a sprinkle of minced cilantro and cotija cheese.
