Fifteen Minute Fajitas

Fifteen Minute Fajitas

Looking for a meal that's quick, easy and healthy? Fajitas are the perfect option for a midweek meal. In fifteen minutes, you'll have a crowd-pleasing feast for your whole family. You can swap in different protein or add in new veggies to mix it up each time you serve. Here's our recipe for Fajitas in Fifteen:

• 1 lbs Beef, Pork, or Chicken Fajita Strips or Daring Plant-Based Chicken
• 1 large white or yellow onion, sliced
• 1-2 red, yellow, or green bell peppers, sliced lengthwise
• Olive Oil (enough to coat protein)
• Juice from 1/2 lime
• 1  tbsp Chili Powder
• 2 tsp Ground Cumin
• 2 tsp Paprika
• 1 tsp Garlic Powder
• 1 tsp Sugar
• 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
• 1/2 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
• Large flour tortillas

(A pre-made Taco seasoning can be used to replace the entire spice mix.)

Coat the protein in the olive oil, lime juice, and spices and set aside while you prep the other ingredients. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the protein and cook, stirring gently for several minutes. After a few minutes, add the onions and peppers, stir to coat in the pan juices, and continue to cook. Meanwhile, heat a second skillet and, one-by-one, heat the tortillas until slightly brown on each side and remove. Once the protein is cooked to your liking remove from heat. Sprinkle with a final dash of lime juice. Garnish with your favorite toppings, such as cilantro, avocado, and sour cream. Enjoy!
