Hey Fajquito! Here’s a little somethin’ that you should know…
Fajquitos are a cross between a fajita and a taquito.
Fajquitos are grilled and fresh like a fajita, but rolled and easy to eat, like a taquito!
Like all great American snacks, Fajquitos come with a few words of caution.
The inside of Fajquitos can be HOT! Try cutting into four or five mini-bites.
Do not overstuff Fajquitos. Think equal portions of each ingredient.
Like rolling sushi, yo.
Fajquitos are the product of FUN and fresh!
The Original Steak Fajquitos
You will need the following ingredients for four Fajquitos.
4 Burrito size or similar Flour Tortillas
3/4 – 1 lb. Top Sirloin or similar steak
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
2 wheels red onion
1 – 2 wheel sweet brown onion
1 – 2 jalepeno peppers (seeded after grilling)
20 slices monterey jack cheese
16 slices avocado
Season steak, peppers and onions to taste. Betty prefers sea salt, fresh pepper and olive oil… a little cayenne and garlic on the steak.
Remove from grill and allow to cool before handling.
Slice steak on a bias in thin strips.
Cut grilled onion wheels in quarters.
Chop jalepeno, minding seeds for heat.
Halve the red pepper strips. Set aside.
Thinly slice monterey jack cheese. Set aside.
Slice avocado. Set aside.
To assemble a Fajquito, lay flour tortilla on flat surface.
Put five slices of cheese in a line, down the center of the tortilla.
Next, sprinkle chopped jalepenos on top of cheese slices.
Align four avocado slices on top of jalepenos.
Align 1/4 of the grilled steak slices atop the avocado.
Finish with a sampling of each: bell pepper, red & brown onion.
Carefully roll the tortilla.
Place flap side down on a medium high grill.
Since all of the ingredients on the inside are cooked, you can grill them as little or as long as you like.
Either just till the cheese is melted and the ingredients warmed through, or crispy and golden and grilled on the outside, lava-like and melted on the inside.
Serve fresh grilled corn on the cob with Fajquitos for an added treat.
Serve with Tapatio Hot Sauce for some added heat.
