Halloumi Fajitas

Looking for a meatless meal to make the whole fam happy?  Halloumi fajitas are here to serve.

Ingredients

Fajita Seasoning

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Fajitas

  • 1 block halloumi, cut into 1/2" slabs
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 2 any color bell peppers, sliced
  • tortillas

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the fajita seasoning ingredients in a bowl.  Give it a good mix up to get it all together.  Set aside.

  2. Get your grill, griddle, or skillet hot - medium/high heat is perfect.  Add a bit of oil to the vessel and when hot, add your veggies.  Generously sprinkle the fajita seasoning on them.  Stir the veggies around to get them all coated.

    While your veggies are cooking, sprinkle the fajita seasoning on both sides of the halloumi slabs. 

    Saute until the veggies are done to your liking.  I like to still have some crisp, but the choice is all yours.  When done, remove to a plate or platter.

  3. Add a bit more oil to the pan if needed.  Add your halloumi slices.  You just want the slabs cooked until you see a color build on it.  Maybe 3-4 minutes.  When you like the color, flip and do the same thing.  Just wanting some color.  

    Remove from the vessel and slice into strips.  

    Serve with warm tortillas - however you achieve that.  I like to throw them in a hot cast iron skillet if I'm doing this on the stove, or on the griddle if I'm doing it on my Cuisinart 360 griddle.  You can throw them on the grill too.
