This fajita recipe – with juicy, flavorful chicken, steak or shrimp, peppers and onions topped with cool feta cheese and fresh cilantro – is delicious and easy to prepare. Prepping protein and vegetables in lime juice and The Spice Hunter Fajita Seasoning means this dish comes together in less than 30 minutes, no marinade required. It’s a sure bet for a fresh and lively weeknight meal that can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a large crowd. Your fajitas will be perfectly flavored with The Spice Hunter Fajita Seasoning. This artful blend shares a few common ingredients and spices with Mexican Seasoning, like onion, garlic, cumin and peppers, but it’s the addition of smoky paprika and pungent mustard and ginger that makes it unique, imparting a bold, bright and aromatic flavor to vegetables and meat. While traditional preparation of fajitas calls for skirt steak, opt for a more tender cut with this recipe, like sirloin, or try with chicken or shrimp. Cool and crumbly feta cheese and fresh cilantro provide balance to the deep, warm flavor and texture of the filling. This fajita recipe will evoke all the senses, from the sound and tantalizing smell of the sizzling meat, peppers and onions to the presentation of red, green and white color and the familiar feel of a warm, soft corn tortilla in your hand. Feel free to mix and match proteins or replace with other vegetables, such as mushrooms or zucchini for a delicious vegetarian variation of this one dish meal. Make it uniquely yours, but don’t forget the Spice Hunter Fajita Seasoning, the ideal spice blend for real-deal fajita flavor.
