Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Fajita Burritos

We're all about all things Mexican food in the SFFS house. One of MY favorites is fajitas! I love that sizzling skillet of veggies and meat...all smokey when it's brought to the table. I feel like it's a rather healthy choice over say....enchiladas (which I also love) that are usually smothered in some kind of sauce. I can opt to use the tortillas or not, but basically I love the whole thing. So scooping up all the ingredients into a big ole tortilla to make a burrito is a great way to have fajitas the easy way. Make them all up, cover with foil and pop in the oven to keep warm. IT Guy even took one in his lunch the next day and heated it up in the microwave. This is a really yummy and easy thing to throw together for a crowd, too!

Fajita Burritos

1 pound fajita beef
3 bell peppers ~ sliced
1 medium onion ~ sliced
1 fajita mix
1/4 cup water
Salt & pepper to taste
1 cup cooked rice
Burrito sized flour tortillas
Shredded cheese

In a large skillet over high heat, saute the veggies in a little olive oil until slightly blackened and tender crisp. Remove to a plate.

In the same skillet over medium high heat, cook the beef until done.

Add the water and the fajita mix and stir. Add salt and pepper.

Add the veggies back to the pan and stir to combine.
