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

Wash produce before use


Prep your protein

Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

Shrimp: Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.


Start cooking your protein

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes for shrimp; 2 to 4 minutes for steak, pork, or plant-based chicken; and 3 to 5 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While your protein is cooking, prepare the vegetables. 


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; thinly slice the pepper.


Cook the vegetables; finish your protein

In the same pan used for your protein, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Add the fajita spice blend and your protein and any accumulated juices. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and your protein is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the vegetables and your protein are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves. 
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.


Transfer the lettuce leaves to individual plates. Top with your protein and vegetables, New Mexican chile salsa, guacamole, and cilantro and serve.
