So to be honest there is not real a recipe involved, as in there are no specific measurements, but my hubby likes my fajitas a lot better than his so I thought I would share. So what makes mine better than hubby's? My trick is that I don't use a prepared packet of fajita seasoning. I season them myself.
Here are the basic ingredients in my fajitas:
- Chicken or Steak (preferably steak)
- 1 Onion
- 1 Green or Red Bell Pepper
- Garlic (Sometimes I used fresh minced, sometimes I use garlic powder; depends on the day and how lazy I'm feeling, I don't keep minced garlic in the fridge, so I have to chop it myself)
- Seasoning salt
- Chili Powder
- Pico de Gallo seasoning (more optional, it's just something we happen to keep among our spices)
Start by chopping up the onion and the steak. Saute the onions a in a frying pan until they start to get tender, then add the meat. Add in the garlic and other seasonings. Sorry, I don't measure anything. As a general rule I use more chili powder and Pico de Gallo than any of the other seasonings. I try to stay light on the salt and the cilantro. After the meat has browned on the outside, add in the bell pepper and cook until the meat is done. Enjoy wrapped up in a tortilla with some sour cream and your favorite cheese. We usually go for cheddar, mozzarella or pepper jack.
