You will love this 6 Ingredient Fajitas because they only require 6 ingredients! You can add extra toppings like avocado, salsa, cilantro, and lime if you want. But, this recipe only requires 6 ingredients for the fajitas!

I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Prairie, using their amazing Organic Fajita Meat. I love this Fajita Meat because it’s already sliced thin, it cooks up super quick, and it’s the only organic fajita meat out there!

I use my Simple Taco Seasoning on the fajita meat, making this recipe incredibly easy as you only need one spice mix, instead of a bunch of spices. I have my Simple Taco Seasoning in my spice cabinet all the time, but you can also buy an organic taco seasoning as well.

Why You'll Love This Recipe

6 Ingredients: I love recipes with minimal ingredients and this one does not disappoint!

Easy AF: This recipe is incredibly easy to make and you can have dinner ready in no time. I also love this because if you are a small family (like us!) then we get to have leftovers so it makes dinner for two nights! That makes dinner the following night even easier.

Organic Fajita Meat: I use Organic Prairie Beef Fajita Meat in this recipe because it's 100% organic, born raised, and processed in the USA. When you support Organic Prairie, you are directly supporting farming families in the US, which is important to me.

If you're wondering why USA organic beef is better than foreign beef, beyond the farmer connection, there are more regulations around the organic standards. This is something I recently learned, where before I just thought if it was USADA certified organic it was all the same. But, it's really not and that is super unfortunate as it creates confusion for you at the grocery store.

So, while foreign meats can hold the USDA Organic seal, those farms may not be inspected as often as USA farms are. So, you may not be getting the best quality meat. It's part of the system that I think is broken, as if you hold a seal, you should have the same requirements as everyone else who also has it. But, we're just not there yet. So, this is just another reason to support US farmers.

FAQ's

What's the difference between fajitas and tacos?

Fajita meat is grilled or sautéed with bell peppers and onions, where taco meat is not. Fajitas usually have more simple or plain toppings, as opposed to tacos which can have many options.

Can I use different tortillas?

Yes, while I use flour tortillas here, you could also use corn if you are gluten free! You could also serve this fajita meat and veggies with rice and beans if you are gluten free too.
