Fajitas On A Blackstone Griddle are a favorite at my house! Making food at home is one of my favorite ways to celebrate holidays, like Cinco De Mayo! My only regret is not trying it years ago on my Blackstone Griddle. (I have included affiliate links to products I love. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.)
Now if you are new to Blackstone or eyeing getting one, let me just say get one. I have the 17inch Blackstone which I now use on job sites and when we camp. My back deck has 36 inch Blackstone which has made many meals. Food just tastes better when cooked on the Blackstone and the clean up is a breeze!

How To Cook Fajitas On The Blackstone Griddle:
Now if you want to take fajita night to the next level you can make your tortilla using a tortilla press! I have been eying getting one to make my own. If you don’t use the Blackstone to warm your tortillas I recommend a Tortilla warmer especially if you are serving a large group!
It doesn’t matter what kind of meat you are using you will start with a container or a bag to allow the meat to marinate before cooking. If you are using a tougher cut of meat be sure to marinate longer so the salt and lime can tenderize the meat more.
In a bowl or bag combine your seasonings, vegetable Oil, water, tequila, and lime juice. Now there isn’t much measuring it mostly depends on how seasoned you like your meat.
Allow your meat to marinate and take the time to cut up your vegetables for the fajitas.
Now a good knife is a must-have in any kitchen! I picked up this Aicok Knife (HERE)for under $10, but it’s keeps going out of stock often on Amazon due to how awesome it is. There are a lot of other top-rated knives on Amazon at a great price. I am not the best at picking out Knives so when I can read reviews to find a good quality knife it’s a win for me.

For making Fajitas I recommend cutting the peppers into quarters and then sliced them into long slices.
When you are ready to start cooking fire up your Blackstone griddle.
Reoil your griddle, I always reoil just to make sure my griddle won’t stick and cooks well. Be sure to check out -> How To Care For Your Blackstone Griddle.
When your griddle is ready I turned the heat down on low and then drop your meat on.
Stir your meat often using the spatulas that came in the Blackstone Griddle Accessories kit.
When your meat is almost done start to mix the veggies into your meat. I made this at the same time as Steak, Shrimp, and Chicken Fajitas at the same time so I spread my veggies out with the different meat.
Cook until your veggies are tender and your meat is cooked.
Remove and then scrape your griddle clean with the Blackstone Scraper that comes in the Blackstone Accessory kit.
Reoil your griddle if needed.
Butter both sides of tortillas shells and throw on the Blackstone to grill them up.
Remove and serve!
