Camping Fajitas

I thought it might be fun for you to see my other kitchen.
We leave our farm and take the travel trailer out several times a year.
I love cooking in this little kitchen.  I leave it packed with staples and with a quick walk around the perimeter of the  grocery store to get produce, dairy and meat...
we're set to go.
One thing I try to do is to make one meal stretch to two meals.
For this dinner we used leftover steak to make fajitas. 
Make it in your next getaway kitchen or make it at's a summer winner.

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 pound grilled tenderloin steak, chilled and sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, sliced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely minced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (add more according to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • mexican blend cheese
  • salsa
  • tortilla shells
  • sour cream and guacamole (optional)
  1. In a large fry pan, heat the oil over medium high heat and then  saute the onion, pepper, jalapeño pepper and garlic until onion begins to caramelize.
  2. Add the sliced steak and seasonings and a few tablespoons of water and stir to combine.
  3. Continue to stir just a minute over medium high heat until heated through.
  4. Wrap tortilla shells in foil and warm on the grill or in the oven.  
  5. Spoon fajita mixture over shells and top with cheese, sour cream and guacamole.
Serves 4


  1. Love your "other" kitchen and what it can produce! Great tips for making summer meals easy and delicious while on the road (or at the camp grounds). We are seriously looking at camper trailers and you make it look so comfortable and easy!

  2. Great idea, Lovella! When we are in our getaway home, we also stretch one meal into two. We often grill extra chicken to use in quesadillas or to add to a salad another day. With limited space in that kitchen, our staple spices and seasonings in there are minimal and we keep the cooking real simple. These fajitas with left over steak are just perfect.

  3. Looks super yummy but when do you add the meat?!

    1. Oops..thanks tulip, the steak is added into the recipe now.

  4. Oh My Heavens, we have the almost exact same trailer LOL Can't wait to try your fajitas in MY little kitchen. Thanks !

  5. What about the refried beans you mentioned?

    1. Thank you! If you have leftover refried beans, just spread a little on before you layer the rest of the ingredients.
