Grilled Fajitas

Making restaurant-quality fajitas has never been easier. Create a simple fajita seasoning using spices already in your pantry and coat your choice of meat. For optimal taste, we recommend using high-quality ingredients, including warm tortillas cooked to perfection.

How to Make Grilled Fajitas:

1. Choose Your Meat

For this recipe, you’ll need 1 ½ pounds of either steak (flank, rump, or skirt steak), boneless skinless chicken breasts, or large uncooked peeled shrimp. Mix and match to create a variety of delicious fajitas.

2. Prepare the Fajita Seasoning

In a gallon-size resealable bag, mix oil, chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic, oregano, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Add your choice of meat to the bag, seal it, and toss to coat. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 3 hours for maximum flavor.

4. Grill the Meat

For chicken or steak, cook on a hot skillet or grill pan for a few minutes on each side until cooked through. Remove the meat from the heat, cover it with foil, and let it rest. Shrimp should be cooked for 2-4 minutes on each side until pink.

Make Ahead And Freezing Instructions:

To prepare ahead, chop the vegetables and meat and store them separately in the refrigerator for up to 1 day before cooking. Fajita seasoning can be made and stored in an airtight container for up to six months.

If you want to freeze your ingredients, chop the vegetables and meat and store them separately in a freezer-safe bag for 2-3 months. Thaw them in the refrigerator overnight and continue with step 3 of the recipe. The fajita seasoning can also be made ahead and stored in an airtight container for up to six months.
