I don’t know if you can tell or not, but we kinda have a thing for Mexican food in our house. I’ve never actually thought about it until know, but I’m almost positive we eat Mexican food at least once a week. From a burrito, to enchiladas, to these awesome Spicy Fajitas!
Maybe it’s because I live in Southern California, and have been exposed to amazing Mexican food since I was a kid. My mother’s go to recipes, if it wasn’t Italian, it was Mexican recipes. They’re just so delicious and simple to make – especially Fajitas! I just have a special place in my heart for cooking up good Mexican food at home.
The best part about Fajitas is they’re so simple to make, full of flavor and fresh ingredients, and it’s up to you on what you want to put in them. Don’t want chicken? Try steak or shrimp! Want to go Vegetarian? Crank up the veggie portions or maybe add in some tofu, or tempeh! As long as you have an awesome fajita seasoning it’s going to come out great!
Speaking of fajita seasoning, I’ve come up with a pretty awesome seasoning in this recipe that you’re going to love! It’s got that familiar fajita flavor that you all know and love, with an added punch with some cayenne pepper! You’re going to want to double up on the batch and store it for later! It’ll come in handy when you need to get a fast dinner going on a weeknight!
This is already a pretty quick recipe, but if you want something SUPER fast to cook on a weeknight, do you’re prep on Sunday night. It’ll keep for about 2-3 days in the fridge, although I’d definitely recommend cooking it the next night for peak freshness! Having your prep work already done should allow you to get a full dinner on the table in under 15 minutes with sides like a can of refried beans, and some Easy Spanish Rice
Maybe I’ve seen one too many fajita plates ordered at restaurants, but I love the sound of fajitas sizzling and being brought to the table. So keep it easy on yourself and bring everything to the table and let the family dig in and serve themselves! Plus, it’s kinda cool for the kids to watch the fajitas coming to the table making the sizzling sounds, so use a cast iron skillet!
