Here are a few picks from the garden last week. You can see that our onions are small, but they are really good! So, what do you make with onions, peppers, and jalapenos? Fajitas!

I love fajitas because really, you can throw anything in to your own taste, plus it is a very easy dish. I like making my own seasoning and since we make a lot of spicy dishes, I make my own taco seasoning ahead. This recipe was originally from and I just alter to what I have on hand:

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (took this out and added fresh jalapenos)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano (I use fresh)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

IMG_6909 While you are browning your meat (chicken, beef, or shrimp), dice up your veggies. Once you have drained the meat (if needed), add your veggies to sauté, add about 1/4 water and the seasoning to taste.

Let the mixture cook down for about 7-10 minutes until the water has evaporated. Serve with tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, rice, and beans (or whatever else you like with fajitas)

I used .5 lb of organic beef (from the awesome Sprouts sale a few weeks back) IMG_6911and although my son loved the meat, he didn’t like the cooked vegetables. So, he stuck with fresh zucchini instead.




This recipe shows that you don’t have to have a lot from your garden to make a fresh picked homemade meal.

So, what do you like to add to your Fajitas?
