Step 1: Heat oil in 12" skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage. Cook until golden brown on all sides, about 3 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate. Add peppers, onions, celery, garlic, chili powder and hot pepper flakes to the same skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes more.
