I love Mexican food! It's probably my 2nd favorite behind Italian (give me pasta and some wine and I am one HAPPY girl!!). And when you throw a margarita in the mix, it's food time bliss. Mmmmmm....
Well I made some easy pork fajitas the other night that were pretty darn tasty. We didn't have margaritas (bummer) - but it was still a yummy meal. I didn't initially think about sharing the recipe so I forgot to take many photos until it was all cooked up. But I'll share what I've got and the recipe as it was so easy (made it in the slow cooker) and flavorful.
You take a boneless pork loin roast (about 2 to 3 pound roast) and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of fajita seasoning all over it. You can find packets of that seasoning usually where you find the taco shells and other Mexican staples in the grocery store. If you have a smaller roast use a little less seasoning. Pour a cup of your favorite salsa all over the top too. Then cover and cook on low 8-10 hours like you would for a pulled pork. You don't need to add any water. The salsa simmers down and you have a nice tasty sauce left in the bottom. I know you see peppers in the photo - we'll get to those in a minute.
When the pork is all done and tender take it out and shred it with 2 forks. Sorry for weird magenta glow - I think my shirt was reflecting in the forks. Lol Place the pork back in the slow cooker and you can go one of the 2 ways next. Either take a bag of frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions that have been thawed and throw them in. Put the cooker on high and cook another 30 minutes. Or you can do what I did which was to slice up some red, orange, & yellow bell peppers and 1/2 an onion and saute them in a pan with a little oil and more fajita seasoning for about 5 minutes and then throw them in the slow cooker and cook a little longer until everything is heated through well.
Then just warm some flour tortillas in the oven and place your pork and peppers and onions in the middle. Add a little sour cream, guacamole and some shredded Mexican style cheese and you're good to go. Pretty easy but really yummy.
I make my guacamole by mashing up avocado (about 3) and squeeze the juice of one lime over the top. Add a little minced garlic, chopped cilantro and salt & pepper to taste. Then I like to add a little dollop of sour cream to blend into the guacamole to make it even creamier. Chill for an hour and Ole!
