1 small
jalapeno pepper, seeded & diced very fine

1Slice bacon into small pieces, brown in a skillet and drain fat. I reserve some of the bacon fat and use it to saute the onions and brown the kielbasa in.
2Brown kielbasa in skillet with small amount of bacon fat. Drain on paper towel and set aside.

Saute the diced onion in a about a tablespoon of bacon fat until soft. Drain on paper towel and set aside.

4Add as much or as little of the jalapeno as you like, or eliminate altogether if not a fan of spicy food.
