Perhaps one of my favorite meals of all times is fajitas. If we are going out to eat (which isn’t too often) I will usually prefer somewhere with great fajitas! We will share the order and Mr. W takes over control of chips, rice, and tortillas :-) If you like fajitas as much as I do, you have to try my Fajita Turkey Burgers

It’s also a super easy dish to prepare at home. If we need a dinner on the table fast, I love putting peppers and onions in the bottom of my Deep Covered Baker, topping it with chicken and taco seasoning. I microwave it for about 17 minutes and chop it all up to serve.

On the stovetop it’s super easy too! I sauté the peppers and onions and set aside to brown the meat with the fajita seasoning. So easy and so full of flavor! Here’s my recipe for Sweet ‘n Smoky Steak Fajitas.

Weight-loss surgery patients love fajitas for all these reasons. Great flavor with the protein and a little big of vegetable with the bell peppers and onions. To keep this recipe super simple, I bought pre-cooked steak strips and thawed them in the microwave. The whole process was very fast and I have a feeling my postop bariatric patients won’t get through a whole one ;-) Leftovers for lunch!
