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

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the onion and peppers

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
  • Remove the stems and seeds from the mini sweet peppers; cut the peppers lengthwise into ¼-inch-wide strips.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons [2 to 3 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion and cook until just starting to char, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the peppers, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to char and soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan if using for the tortillas.
While the onion and peppers cook, prepare the lime and start the refried beans.


Prep the lime; cook the refried beans

  • Rinse the pinto beans.
  • Cut the lime into wedges for garnish.
In another large frying pan over medium heat, combine the beans and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, gently mashing the beans to form a coarse paste, until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatillo salsa and cook until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes, then stir in the cheddar. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the beans cook, start preparing the tortillas.


Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in the same pan used for the onion and peppers 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.


Set out the tortillas, onion and peppers, refried beans, lime wedges, and achiote crema. Invite everyone to assemble their own fajitas.
