By: SuckleBusters


Classic Texas Style Fajitas! Make this classic Texas Style Fajita recipe using chicken, beef, pork or any meat on your grill. The key to great fajitas is to marinade/cook the meat and the vegetables separately, then assemble including the optional toppings. Also, using warm tortillas cooked on a griddle will greatly improve the flavor of these fajitas.       



2 - 4 Large boneless/skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs)

Note: Substitute any type of meat, for beef fajitas use 2 lbs tenderized skirt steak.  

1 Medium yellow onion

1 large red bell pepper

1 Large green bell pepper

1 - 2 Jalapenos (optional) 

2 limes

Olive Oil or Butter

Soy Sauce

6 TBSP SuckleBusters Fajita Seasoning 

1 TBSP SuckleBusters SPG

12 Flour Tortillas


Optional Toppings: 

Shredded Cheese


Your Favorite Salsa 



Marinade the chicken: Rinse and dry the chicken breasts, then put into a plastic bag. Add approx 1/4 cup of soy sauce making sure the chicken is well coated, squeeze out any excess air and seal the bag. Place the bag in your refrigerator and allow the chicken to marinate for about 1 hour and up to overnight. When ready to use, remove the chicken from the plastic bag and place it in a deep-sided dish or pan. coat both sides of the chicken with SuckleBusters Fajita Seasoning. The chicken is now ready to grill.  


Marinade Chicken Fajita


Marinade the Vegetables:  The goal is to keep this marinade simple and let the fresh flavors of the vegetables shine through. Slice the bell peppers and onion in 1/4 inch or fewer rings and place in a cast iron (or other pot suitable for the grill) skillet. You can add any type of peppers or onions to this recipe. Lightly cover the vegetables with olive oil and 1 tablespoon of SuckleBusters SPG (alternatively use salt + pepper + garlic). Squeeze on 1/2 of the lime juice and allow the vegetables to rest while the grill is warming up.


Fajita Vegtables


Grill the chicken and vegetables on medium-high heat: Simply grill the chicken and vegetables until done, stirring the vegetables to prevent burning. Caution, use extra thick hot pads when handling the skillet, the handle will be super hot. The juices in the chicken will run clear and the vegetables will become translucent when they are done. Remove and squeeze on 1/2 lime onto the chicken, reserve for assembly. 


Grilling Fajitas


Slice the chicken, assemble and serve: We prefer using warm flour tortillas - cooked on a flat top with a little butter. Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips then add the vegetables and other fixings to complete. Most often used are; shredded cheese, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. Roll up, serve and ENJOY!
