Fabulous Pressure Cooker Fajitas


Fajitas are a traditional Mexican dish, created by local workers living in the West of Texas. They used tough cuts of meat to cook dinners for the whole neighborhood and that was definitely something absolutely great. Of course, you do not need to organize a big party to cook this dish. A pressure cooker will help you to make this recipe much easier. Such a dish is still fabulous and can impress all your family with the incredible flavor and amazing taste.

  To make the dish perfect, you need to know what seasoning to add to this pot recipe. We recommend you to use homemade mix instead of the one you may buy in the store. The main ingredients you should use are chili powder, paprika, black pepper, salt and cumin. If you like, you can add onion or garlic garlic - very good recipes of garlic learn more... powder and oregano.

  1. Wash the red bell peppers carefully. Cut them into long strips. Peel the onion and slice it as well.
  2. Choose a good, tough cut of beef. Cut it into long strips. Put them into a deep bowl. Add the mix of spices and entirely cover the meat with this fragrant seasoning.
  3. Take a pressure cooker and fill it with all these ingredients. The meat in all these recipes should be mixed with the vegetables. Cook the dish on a high pressure for about 10 minutes. Slowly open the lid. Now you need to either get rid of the extra liquid or take the veggies and meat out of the pressure cooker. This yummy dish has the taste of home, so you may enjoy it even without wrapping everything into a tortilla.
  4. If you want to try the traditional version of such a meal, use tortilla wraps. You can also add canned corn, beans or even both.

This is a very easy pressure cooker dinner idea. You can serve this meal with any toppings you like. We recommend you use sour cream, cheese sauce, salsa or guacamole.

 Keep in mind that even if you cook your meals in the pressure cooker, something may still go wrong. It there is too much liquid in the bowl, you should just get rid of it. Drain your meat with veggies and put these ingredients into the bowl. If your dish is not spiced enough, just add more seasoning right before serving.
