Equipment

Ingredients

Fajitas:

  • 8 - 10 flour tortillas (already cooked) Use small fajita-style tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced (seeds + membrane removed) I prefer sweet red, yellow or orange peppers
  • teaspoon taco or fajita seasoning, divided
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 14 ounce can black beans

Optional Toppings:

  • halved cherry tomatoes (optional)
  • diced avocado
  • sliced jalapeños
  • shredded cheese omit for vegan fajitas, or use vegan shredded cheese
  • hot sauce

Instructions

  • Add oil, diced onion, peppers, tomatoes (if using), and 1 teaspoon taco seasoning and salt to the skillet. Set on a hot campfire grate and cook until tender.
    Add beans (not drained) and remaining taco seasoning to a campfire-safe saucepan. Set on the campfire grate until beans are simmering.
    Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and set them on the hot campfire grate, turning after a minute or two to warm both sides. (Tortillas will do best over indirect heat.)
    Cook Until Peppers + Onions Are Tender.
  • Unwrap the tortillas. Serve the tortillas with the fajita veggies and the beans, along with any optional toppings.
    I find it's easiest to allow people to assemble their own fajita plates and add their own desired toppings.

Notes

Fajitas for Meat-Eaters: Want to add meat?  Simply add your favorite (cooked) meat of choice and serve it with the fajitas.
Corn Tortillas Instead of Flour: To use corn tortillas, cook them in a skillet just before serving.
