Quick and easy meals are the way forward. Who wants to spend hours in front of a stove when it is one million (and no, I won’t stop exaggerating!) degrees outside? I’d much rather throw dinner together in a few minutes and actually be able to enjoy these summer evenings – even if they are ridiculously hot.
These 30-Minute Pork Fajitas tick all the boxes. They’re fast, require few ingredients and taste great! What more could you want for a weeknight meal?
I know I’ve moaned previously about the serious lack of Mexican ingredients here, taking into consideration that I live on a Spanish island, but I discovered something fantastic last week. Whilst wandering around the food aisles, I spotted an international section, with treats categorized into different countries.
Okay, some were a bit out – since when were fig bars from Germany and how long has Latin America specialised in coconut milk? – but the Mexican section was spot on. In addition to the common salsas and guacamoles, I found tomato tortillas and corn tortillas – which I’ve been wanting to try forever. So now I’ve got cupboards packed with tortillas, get ready for a blast of Mexican-inspired dishes!
30-Minute Pork Fajitas
1 pound pork, diced
3 tablespoons taco seasoning (see my favourite recipe below)
½ onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1/3 cup sweet corn
1 large tomato, diced
1/3 cup cheese, grated
1/3 cup sour cream
My favourite taco seasoning
2 tablespoons chilli powder
3 teaspoons cumin powder
2 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1. Mix the diced pork with the taco seasoning and leave to marinate for a few minutes.
2. Meanwhile heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan and fry the onion and red pepper together for about 10 minutes over a medium heat. Add the sweet corn and tomato and cook for another 5 minutes.
3. Add the pork and cook for a further 15 minutes – stirring regularly – or until the pork is cooked through. Whilst the pork is cooking, warm up the tortillas in the microwave or oven.
4. To assemble, spoon some of the pork mix into the centre of the tortilla and top with sour cream and cheese.
