Fajitas are one of my favorite things in the whole world. So when the weather started to get warmer, and our thoughts turned to grilling, I though we’d turned this Mexican classic into a kabob! These Fajita Kabobs contain all the great ingredients you expect, and are bursting with fire grilled flavor!
These don’t take very long to cook, and they’re easy to assemble. Because you’re using beef, you don’t have to worry about cross contamination. If you want to substitute chicken for beef, make sure you keep the chicken on different skewers than the vegetables.
Our recipe calls for sirloin steak, cut into cubes. Feel free to use whatever cut of beef is available or on sale. The important thing is to keep the cubes roughly the same size. Otherwise, you’ll have inconsistently cooked meat.
Fajita usually have onions and bell peppers. We used red onions, cut into roughly the same size chunks as the beef. For the bell peppers, we used a red and a green (again, cut into comparably sized pieces). If there are other colors of bell peppers you want to use, go for it!
Once all the ingredients are on the skewers, throw them on the grill! Brush them liberally with our delicious Fresh Churned Garlic Butter. It adds great flavor!
Don’t forget the fajita seasoning!
