Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican victory over French forces in 1862, but now days it seems to be a day where everyone eats and enjoys Mexican food! We are no exception to that as we both love the foods of Mexico. Since Cinco de Mayo is next week, I thought I would share with you my recipe for Pork Fajitas. Most restaurants feature fajitas with either steak or chicken which puzzles me because pork is very commonly served in Mexico. Pork loin is low in fat, inexpensive and delicious, so why not use it in your fajitas? Pork absorbs the savory spices of the marinade well, and cooks quickly so it is my choice for these fajitas. This will make four good sized fajitas. I can just manage one, but Sparky ate two and declared he was stuffed! A plate of nachos made with homemade Pico de Gallo rounded out our meal. Let’s celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home with a plate of Fabulous Pork Fajitas!
Here’s what we’ll need.
