Adobado Fajita Recipe by Colorado Spice

Adobado Fajita Blend is the key ingredient to a quick and easy Southwestern feast in your own home! Packed with bold and warming spices, the Adobado Fajita blend is the perfect addition to a mouthwatering marinade or as a seasoning all on its own. The term fajita originally referred to skirt steak and adobado originally referred to a marinade, so our guide to the perfect homemade fajita recommends using this blend as a marinade for steak. However, you can use chicken, shrimp, ground beef, or any protein base of your choice with this seasoning. Fajitas are served with an array of vegetables including peppers, onions, and tomatoes, but feel free to make this recipe your own and come up with some new kitchen creations! Just don’t forget the hot sauce!

To begin, trim the excess fat from your beef. We recommend top round steak for this recipe. Top round steak is a lean cut of meat that’s easy to find but you’re welcome to use your preferred cut of beef. Cut the steak in half lengthwise and slice each half into quarter inch strips, cutting against the grain. Place the strips into a large baking dish. In a separate bowl, combine two cups of tomato juice, a third of a cup of lime juice, and the entire package of Colorado Spice Adobado Fajita blend. Stir well and pour the mixture over your beef strips. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but no longer than 24 to marinate the beef, stirring occasionally.

While you’re waiting for the meat to marinade, you can arrange your serving platter. Coarsely chop two tomatoes, one red onion, and one green bell pepper. Garnish with one bunch of fresh cilantro. Once the meat is marinaded, discard the liquid and sauté the beef strips until cooked. Beef should reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit when cooked. Now you’re ready to serve your fajita with warm tortillas and your tray of chopped veggies! A slice of lime, grated cheese, and guacamole are welcome sides as well. You can warm store-bought tortillas by heating them in a dry pan over medium heat for about thirty seconds on each side, or you can also try making your own tortillas at home!

Making homemade tortillas may appear to be simple but it will take some practice to get it just right. All you need is flour, salt, water, and a little bit of cooking oil. First combine your dry ingredients, water and salt. Next add in your wet ingredients, water and oil. Knead the dough adding flour as necessary and thoroughly combine the ingredients and then allow it to rest for several minutes. On a floured surface, roll out a portion of dough into a circle of your desired size. In a hot skillet, heat the dough on each side until golden brown and serve warm.
