Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! In honor of Cinco de Mayo I thought I’d make some pork fajitas! Yes!!! I love fajitas, so delicious, so simple to make and you make these with a nice margarita, oh boy, it’s like you’re in Mexico.
First I like to make the pepper and onion, so I start off with 2 small onions or 1 1/2 large onions, a green bell pepper and a yellow bell pepper.
Chop up the onion and peppers julienne style.
Next melt some butter in a large skillet and add the onion and peppers.
You can add fajita mix to this but I like to add tex mex, and feel free to add as much as you want and make it as spicy as you want.
Keep cooking for about 10 min, on high heat, and stir constantly after which take it out and place it in a bowl.
Next we can cook the pork, now you can use chicken obviously if you prefer, but I wanted to do pork this time, because I had this beautiful pork loin. Cut it up in thin strips about 2 inches long each.
Heat another tablespoon of butter in the same skillet where you cooked the onions then add the pork. Also add additional fajita mix to this, or tex mex, and some salt and pepper if you wish.
While the pork is cooking, I chopped up some lettuce, because I like lettuce on my fajitas.
I used medium size whole wheat tortillas for my fajitas.
When the pork is done, take it out and place it in a bowl as well.
Doesn’t it look delicious? The way I like to serve this is with sour cream, salsa, cheese and lettuce. Â It’s real simple just assemble your fajitas first add some pork to a tortilla, then onion and pepper, salsa, cheese and lettuce and I put a bit of sour cream on the side. Yummy!
