Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 3 tbsp fajita seasoning or to taste
  • 2 lbs pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • fresh cilantro for garnish
  • 1 lime cut into wedges
  • 8 small tortillas

For guacamole

  • 2 avocados
  • juice from 1 lime about 2 tbsp
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste

Instructions

  • Clean and slice the onions into long strips. Slice the peppers into long strips as well. Place peppers and onions in a large bowl, sprinkle 1 1/2 tbsp of the fajita mix over the onions and peppers and toss.
  • Clean and slice the pork tenderloin into long strips and place in a bowl. Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 tbsp of fajita mix over the pork and stir to make sure each piece of pork is seasoned well.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil over medium high heat and add the pork to it. Cook the pork for 5 to 10 minutes until it's fully cooked, and it's slightly charred, but not burned.
  • Remove the pork from skillet, and wipe the skillet clean.
  • Add another tbsp of olive oil to the skillet and heat it up. Add the onion and pepper mixture and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is caramelized and the peppers are soft. Add the pork back to the skillet, mix with peppers and onions and cook for a minute.
  • To make the guacamole, mash the avocados in a small bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
  • Assemble the tortillas, add some pork, onion, peppers, and top with avocado. Garnish with cilantro if preferred.
