About Fajita Poppers

When I lived in Scottsdale, the best fajitas I ever had were at Ajo Als.

The seasoning was perfect and the presentation was excellent.

You always knew when someone ordered fajitas, because you could hear the fajitas sizzling throughout the restaurant.

So when I was preparing the dishes for the Cinco de Mayo celebration, I thought of these fajitas.

But then I changed my mind.

Fajitas are incredibly delicious, it’s true, but they’re not a snack.

They are a complete meal in themselves.

They are also a bit complicated to make.

An incredibly hot tortilla that you fill with perfectly seasoned meat.

Then add all your favorite ingredients, like cooked onions and peppers, guacamole, cheese and cilantro.

Then roll it up and eat it in all its delicious, juicy glory.

But we’re talking snacks here.

Something small and very tasty that can be eaten in one or two bites.

Have a snack and go.

So I figured, why not simplify the fajitas?

Peppers are a key ingredient, so why not replace the tortilla with a mini pepper?

They are the right size and are absolutely stunning with their red, yellow and orange colors.

They are also the ideal container for seasoned beef or chicken and grilled onions.

Top with grated cheese, guacamole and, because I love it so much, some coriander leaves.

The Fahita popper has appeared.

A bite says: Yes, fajita, but it’s much easier to eat.

Of course I had to test them after I made them.

And then I checked them again…. and again.

All I can say is: Make a pile of them, because they will be used up quickly.
