If you decided to give my recipe for chicken fajitas a try, chances are you will love these pork fajitas as well. Fajitas are one of my favorite Mexican foods, and they are so easy to make. The prep work might seem like kind of a hassle but it’s worth it. This recipe uses fajita seasoning as well as fresh garlic and ground cumin for most of the flavor. I used boneless pork chops but pork tenderloin will work as well. I sliced the pork and fried it in the pan but you could also leave it whole, season it, grill it and then slice it. The possibilities for condiments are nearly endless. Personally, I served this with shredded cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, and lettuce. Enjoy.
