30-Minute Pork Fajitas

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.

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
Ingredients
1 pound pork, diced
3 tablespoons taco seasoning (see my favourite recipe below)
4 tortillas
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
 
Recipe
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.

  2. Hi Nicky! Who would want to labor over the stove when something as nice as this can be made quickly. It is just mouthwatering! Did you say 1 million degrees? It doesn’t get anywhere near that hot around here but with all the freak weather conditions elsewhere, I’m not complaining.

  3. I made these for dinner tonight, and they were delicious! I used chicken instead of pork because it’s what I had on hand. I served the fajitas in homemade whole wheat tortillas. I really like the taco seasoning mix and plan to use it in other recipes. Thank you so much.

  4. Great Fajitas! Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Your post has been pinned with the party!
    Come Back Soon!
