Thanksgiving is fast approaching and have learned that many families like turkey cooked in the traditional way but also want to look for other options to integrate new flavors to the traditional dinner celebration and I thought that cooking turkey tenderloin embracing the flavors of my Mexican heritage could go well that is why today I want to share a hassle free recipe to prepare Turkey Fajitas, so let’s cook!


  • 2 pounds of turkey tenderloin
  • 3 cups of sweet petite peppers
  • 2 cups of sliced red onions
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of fajita seasoning

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup of lime juice
  • 1/2 cup of chicken broth
  • 2 chipotle peppers mashed (preferably those that are canned)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 teaspoons of  fajita seasoning

Preparation time: 45 minutes. This recipe for Turkey Fajitas serves 4-6 guests. Approximate cost per person is $2.50 depending on the price of the ingredients at your local supermarket. You will need a pyrex, a chopping block, a knife, a mixing bowl, aluminum foil, a food processor and an electric or gas oven.

Start preparing the sauce first, place all of the ingredients in the food processor and combine well, set aside in a mixing bowl until ready to use. Take the turkey tenderloin out of the plastic wrapping and place it in the pyrex.
