Pull off and discard skins, seeds, and stems; then thinly slice pepper and chiles and set aside.
In a wide frying pan, cook sausage slices over medium heat, turning occasionally, until browned.
With a slotted spoon, remove sausages and set aside.
Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings.

Cook, stirring often, until onion is soft about 10 minutes.
Return sausage to pan and add bell pepper, chiles, and tomatoes.
