Campfire Fajitas

Like I said in my earlier posts, we eat horribly when we go camping. This is one of my crew's recipe for Campfire Fajitas.

  • Raw Shrimp - deveined and shelled
  • Chicken Thighs - skinless and boneless
  • Flat Iron Steak
  • 2 Large red onions - (TIP: the red kind caramelize a lot better)
  • Baby Portabella Mushrooms
  • Any colored bell pepper besides green ( TIP: green bell peppers are immature and tasteless )
  • Tortillas ( TIP: Authentic fajitas are corn tortillas, only gringos like flour tortillas )
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Water (amount from taco seasoning package)
Do all of your preparation before starting this one skillet meal. Preferably before it gets dark, slice the mushrooms, thinly slice the red onions, and take the center out of the bell pepper and slice.

Cook the meats first except for the shrimp.

Remove the cooked meat from the grill and allow to slightly cool, enough to be able to slice into pieces. Place your biggest cast iron skillet onto the grill space, and add all of your vegetables. Cook for a few minutes then add the taco seasoning and water (amount called for on the package of seasoning).

When the onions begin to become translucent, add the meats and the shrimp into the skillet. It's time to serve when the shrimp is done. Depending on the heat of the grill, maybe 5 minutes. Hint: warm the tortillas so that they become pliable and don't fall apart.

We also had Black beans, several homemade hot sauces, shredded cheese, and sour cream. Life is good in the woods.
