Chef's Tip

If you have any remaining tortillas, you can turn them into chips: Heat the oven to 350°F. Cut the tortillas into wedges. On a sheet pan, drizzle the wedges with 1 to 2 teaspoons neutral oil, season generously with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the chorizo

  • Cut a small corner from the chorizo packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chorizo to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Do not clean the pan.
While the chorizo cooks, prepare the vegetables.

2

Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ¼-inch-wide strips.
  • If using the jalapeño, cut in half lengthwise and remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; cut the jalapeño crosswise into ¼-inch-wide slices. Wash your hands after handling.
In the same pan used for the chorizo, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to char, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper, fajita spice blend, and as much jalapeño as you like; season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are charred and softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables cook, prepare the garnishes.

3

Prep the garnishes

  • Zest the lime and juice half, keeping the zest and juice separate; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Zest both limes; juice 1 lime and cut 1 lime into wedges.]
  • RRemove any coarse stems from the cilantro sprigs.
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, lime zest, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.

Serve

Set out the tortillas, chorizo, vegetables, lime wedges, lime yogurt, and cilantro. Invite everyone to assemble their own fajitas.
