Long and overdue recipe!

Hey Everyone!! So sorry it has taken me so long to post another recipe. Things have been busy to say the least, but I will save that for another post! Let me give you a recipe to make up for my blogging hiatus. These fajitas are so so so tasty! They came about when a really good friend, Kristine, told me about a recipe of hers. Kristine is an omnivore but when she describes her dishes to me, she replaces the animal ingredient with Julie-friendly ingredients. This way we can talk cooking and even share recipes—something I don’t usually do with my omnivore friends. I swear she will be vegan at some point. I’m just being patient and waiting until she comes around. Hehehe.

Serves 4 (I might serve it with a side and not by itself if you’re feeding 4)

Difficulty: easy to medium

Cook Time: 30 minutes (not including marinating which can be started on the morning of, or at least an hour before cooking)

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle/can Mexican style beer YUM!
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • juice of 2-3 limes
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • pinch or two of salt

Ingredients for the rest of the dish:

  • 2 packages Morning Star Chik’n Strips
  • 3-4 poblano peppers
  • 1 large or 2 smaller white onions
  • corn tortillas to serve with

Optional garnishes:

  • guacamole
  • tofutti sour cream
  • salsa


First get your marinade ready in either a ziplock bag or tupperware bin and toss in the chik’n strips. Let those marinate for at least an hour or longer in the fridge.


Next you want to slice up your onions and peppers fairly thin.


Put them in a large frying pan or wok with some olive oil.

Ahh, my eyes are burning! Don’t get so close!

Toss in the peppers too, and sauté them together for a while over medium heat. We want them to get nice and flavorful so just stir them every once in a while so they cook evenly. I’d let them go for about 20 minutes.

This is how we want em!

Once the onions and peppers start looking like the pic above you can get another pan ready for your chik’n strips!

Almost done!

I toss in the strips with a smidge of the marinade—about a 1/4 cups worth so the strips can soak in some more of that juice. Cook the strips according to the directions on the bag. Once everything is done cooking we set it all up on a big serving plate. We also heat up corn tortillas over the gas burner, cause what are fajitas without tortilla’s!?!?

Boom. Enjoy.
