Dried oregano 1/2 Tablespoon
Chili powder 1/2 Tablespoon
Garlic powder 1/2 Tablespoon
Tomato 1 Medium , chop

Place sausage and olive oil in a deep skillet. 

Cook and stir over medium heat until sausage crumbles and pink no longer shows. Drain excess fat. 

Add onion, Jalapeno pepper, oregano, chili powder, and garlic powder.
