Pork Fajitas

  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 3 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 2 lbs pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • fresh cilantro (for garnish)
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 8 small tortillas

Fajita Seasoning

  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


Fajita Seasoning

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Recipe will yield about 3 tbsp.


  • Clean and slice the onions into long strips. Slice the peppers into long strips as well. Place peppers and onions in a large bowl, sprinkle 1 1/2 tbsp of the fajita mix over the onions and peppers and toss.
  • Clean and slice the pork tenderloin into long strips and place in a bowl. Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 tbsp of fajita mix over the pork and stir to make sure each piece of pork is seasoned well.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil over medium high heat and add the pork to it. Cook the pork for 5 to 10 minutes until it’s fully cooked, and it’s slightly charred, but not burned.
  • Remove the pork from skillet, and wipe the skillet clean.
  • Add another tbsp of olive oil to the skillet and heat it up. Add the onion and pepper mixture and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is caramelized and the peppers are soft. Add the pork back to the skillet, mix with peppers and onions and cook for a minute.
  • Assemble the tortillas, add some pork, onion, peppers, and top with avocado. Garnish with cilantro if preferred.
