Easy Skillet Fajitas Recipe

Get out of the comfort zone with traditional soups, stews and sweets, try one of the most delicious and simple Mexican recipes - Fajitas! It is a fast food, which is usually prepared in a skillet (the oven version seems drier and not so tender) with pork, chicken or beef and necessarily vegetables. Exemplar is to serve it in tortilla wraps, now they can be found in most big stores, with some yogurt and fresh, flavorful and spicy salsa (see in steps all the instructions).

I liked it so much that I wouldn't necessarily serve it with tortilla wraps, I think this Mexican Fajitas would go great with a garnish of rice or potatoes, if you prefer. Below I made the recipe with pork tenderloin, but you have to replace it with chicken breast or your favorite beef.

By the way, you can find the salsa ingredients separately, in step 4, so as not to confuse too many basic ingredients for the Fajitas recipe.

Step by step


First cut the meat into slices as thin and long as possible.


In a bowl mix for the marinade - 3 cloves crushed garlic, juice of half an orange, 1 teaspoon oregano, 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 0.5 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon paprika or chilli flakes, 1 tablespoon salt and a little ground black pepper.


Pour this over the sliced meat, mix well and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-3 hours.


During this time you can quickly prepare a homemade vegetable sauce :

- finely chop 1-2 tomatoes, 1 hot (or uncooked) pepper, 0.5 piece of red / white onion, 0.5 bunch of fresh parsley;

- Put everything in a bowl, season with salt to taste and juice from half a lemon or lime.

- Leave in the fridge to marinate while you prepare Fajitas.


Effective for eating Fajitas cut long slices the 3 bell peppers - red, yellow and green.

Also, cut the white onion into thick and long slices.


After the meat is marinated, take it out of the fridge and start cooking Fajitas.

First heat the oil well in a deep, large pan, then add the sliced peppers and onions. Stir periodically and heat over high heat, quickly.


When they start to brown slightly and soften a little, remove them with a spatula from the pan and place in a deep plate.


In the hot oil from the pan, left over from the quality of the vegetables, add the marinated meat.

Stir in it periodically, to break the pieces.


When it starts to brown, add another 1-2 teaspoons of paprika, mix and cook for another 3-4 minutes.


Now put back in the pan, over the cooked meat, peppers and onions cooked a little earlier.


Mix well, let it cook together for another 2-3 minutes and turn off the heat.


Fajitas is served hot, in an exemplary way as follows:

- take a tortilla stick, grease it in the middle with a little fatter yogurt, put a few tablespoons of fajitas on top, then season everything on top with fresh vegetable sauce. Bend the stick in half, or roll if it's bigger and enjoy, it's delicious!

But I would combine Fajitas with some rice next time, but without glue, of course.

Good appetite!
