Wanna know one of our secrets for speeding up dinner prep? It’s enlisting your dinner mates to do the work. Well, technically, you’ll still be making sure that the veggies and pork are nicely spiced and the tortillas are warm and toasty for these fajitas. But when you set everything out buffet-style and let everyone assemble their own (just the way they like it), you save yourself a big step!

Boneless Pork Chops
Red Bell Pepper
Southwest Spice Blend
Wash and dry all produce. Halve and peel onion. Thinly slice one half. Finely dice the other half until you have 2 TBSP diced onion. Quarter tomatoes. Zest lime until you have ½ tsp zest, then cut into halves. Core, seed, and remove white ribs from bell pepper, then cut into thin slices. Chop cilantro.
In a small bowl, toss together diced onion, tomatoes, lime zest, a squeeze of lime juice, and half the cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside until meal is ready. TIP: If you’ll be warming your tortillas in the oven and not the microwave, now is a good time to preheat it to 325 degrees.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion and bell pepper. Cook until softened and slightly blistered, 4-5 minutes, tossing occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
Thinly slice pork against the grain into strips. Season with salt and pepper. When veggies are done, remove from pan and set aside. Heat another drizzle of oil in same pan over mediumhigh heat. Add as much pork as will fit without overcrowding (you may need to work in batches). Cook until browned and nearly cooked through, 1-2 minutes per side.
Return veggies and all pork to pan along with Southwest spice blend and a squeeze of lime juice. Cook, tossing, until pork is no longer pink in center, 2-3 minutes. Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high until warm, about 30 seconds.
When everything is ready, set up a station for the fajitas. Place salsa, filling, tortillas, sour cream, cheddar, and remaining cilantro in individual plates or bowls and invite everyone to assemble their own fajitas.
