Happy Monday! I don’t know about y’all, but I loathe going to the grocery store over the weekend. It’s just the pits, is it not? Too crowded and too overwhelming. So, I usually save my shopping for Mondays. Feel like that’s too quick of a turn around to meal plan and make dinner come Monday night? It doesn’t have to be! These easy fajitas can be on your dinner table tonight in less than 20 minutes!
We made these fajitas at my girlfriend’s bachelorette party a few weeks ago and my mind was blown. I love Mexican food in any form so to not be aware that deliciously marinated fajitas could be on my table quickly? What?! Now, I’m obsessed. This specific recipe requires a trip to Trader Joe’s, but if you’re not close to one… you may be able to find pre-marinated meat at your local market!
What You Need:
- Trader Joe’s Carne Asada Autentica
- Array of bell peppers
- Yellow onion
- Salt, Pepper, Any seasonings you want to spice up the veggies
- Choice of cooking oil
- Cabbage or greens (I used Trader Joe’s Kale Slaw Mix)
- Your choice of tortillas
- Any toppings you prefer for fajitas (but the meat is so flavorful, you don’t need much!)
What To Do:
Chop the onion and bell peppers first – this is really the bulk of the “work” of the meal! The meat is ready to go! Simply open the package, cut into strips, and heat on medium-high heat in a pan until done to your liking. I use the extra juices to let it simmer in while cooking. You can absolutely BBQ this too, but for us… #apartmentliving. While your meat is cooking, sauté your chopped veggies in a separate pan with the cooking oil and spices you prefer. While that’s all cooking warm the tortillas (with a little butter, if you’re like me...yum) in the toaster and/or regular oven. Once the meat and veggies are cooked, assemble it all on top of the cabbage-topped tortilla.
I mean, this is my kind of cooking! Easy, simple, delish, done. And pretty darn healthy, too! These are quickly becoming a staple in our household which means you know they’re husband approved.
Hope this quick little “recipe” (or Trader Joe’s find, really) is a helper to the start of your week!
