Skillet Fajitas for #WeekdaySupper

It is almost back to school time at my house. Baseball has ended, but football season is just kicking off. What my family needs are quick, easy, tasty meals that we can share during the week. #SundaySupper begins as a weekly event, but you see,  it soon turns into an everyday event. We look forward to family meals at the table.  Taco nights are big at my house, but I wanted something more. I decided to make skillet fajitas with my own spice blend. One pot meals are so quick to make and easy to clean up. Win/ Win right?

I start my Fajitas with my own blend of seasoning. I like to add another level to the heat with ground ginger and I like to give a squeeze of fresh lime over the cooked veggies and meat.  Yum!

Fajita Seasoning

Ingredients

  • 1 heaped teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Corn Starch
  • 1/2 heaped teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/2 heaped teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 heaped teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 heaped teaspoon Chili Powder
  • A pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • A pinch Dried Ground Ginger
  • A pinch Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
  • Salt (to taste.)

Directions

Step 1
Mix well and store in an air tight jar.

 

Skillet Fajita

Ingredients

  • 1 heaped tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • Protein of your choice (I use thin cut flank or round steak)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper (thin sliced)
  • 1 Onion (thin sliced)
  • Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1 Crooked Neck Squash (diced)
  • 1 Jalapeno (finely diced)
  • Fajita Seasoning

Directions

Step 1
Add your oil to your skillet and heat up. Next, add in your veggies.
Step 2
saute and sprinkle with your Fajita Seasoning.
Step 3
When the veggies are starting to soften, I remove them from the pan and reserve them on a plate while I add the Steak to the skillet.
Step 4
Sprinkle the remaining seasoning onto your Protein, I use thin cut steak, and add to your skillet.
Step 5
Once the meat has browned, I add the veggies back into the pan to finish cooking together.
Step 6
We serve this with warm tortillas and sliced avocado.

These Fajitas really showcase all the great veggies that are season right now. The Red Pepper, Jalapeno and the Squash all came from my backyard garden. You can customize the veggies you add to your skillet too. If you do not like squash but really like baby red skin potatoes, you can add them. The Protein is also customizable to your families taste. I choose steak, but chicken or shrimp would easily substitute in. It is the beauty of homemade skillet meals.
