Garden Party: Garden to Table Fajitas

Garden to Table Fajitas

This is one of my family’s favorite meals, and in the summer, I can get most of the ingredients from my backyard garden.

Garden to Table Fajitas


1 onion, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
1 bell pepper (any color), sliced
add thinly sliced chicken or steak, if desired, or go vegetarian-style

Dump everything in skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle generously with salt-free fajita seasoning, drizzle on a little olive oil, and cook on medium heat until the onions start to stick to the pan. You want to let the onions caramelize a bit for best flavor. Serve with warm flour or corn tortillas, grated cheese, and salsa. I have only used Bolner’s Fiesta brand salt-free fajita seasoning since I learned how to make fajitas when we lived in San Antonio. But, I can’t get it where I live now, so I have to order it online when I run low. It’s the best!

This is super-easy and quick to prepare, and if you’re brave, you can toss in some sliced jalapenos (doesn’t everyone have a gazillion peppers and tomatoes right now?) Here’s a time-saver: pre-slice everything early in the day and store the meat and veggies in two separate storage bags in the fridge. Just toss in the pan when you’re ready to cook.
