Fajita Fried Rice

I have had a beef fajita kit in my freezer for like two months now.  The seasoned meat, the veggies.  And I haven’t done a thing with it because, well, even though I love fajitas, hubby doesn’t do peppers and onions.  I know, it’s a failing.  I had been thinking that if the beef hadn’t already been seasoned, I could make some beef stir fry.  Then I thought, well why not make some fajita fried rice?  So that was the inspiration for this dish, and hubby (who got a bowlful of the stuff BEFORE I added the onions and peppers) declared it a keeper.  Serves 3 as a full meal.


  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 1 pound fajita beef
  • 1 package frozen peppers and onions (you can absolutely use fresh, but this is what I had on hand)
  • 2 packets Sazon
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over high heat.
  2. Add the fajita meat and spices and stir fry until no longer red.  Add the garlic.
  3. In a separate skillet, heat the other tablespoon of oil and stir fry the onions and peppers.
  4. Add the rice to the beef skillet and let sizzle for a bit.
  5. Add the tomato paste and chicken stock.  Stir until well incorporated and rice is heated through.
  6. If you’re sane and like onions and peppers, add them in now.  Stir until well incorporated.
  7. Serve with sour cream and guacamole if you like.
