Mango Pico de Gallo and Fajitas

by Permanent Posies on March 21, 2011

Welcome to Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits and Grocery Shop for Free.  Glad you decided to drop by and check it out.  I invite you to hook up by adding a recipe post in the Linky below so I can check out the recipes you are enjoying this week.  Also, please link back to us on your blog.  If you don’t have your own blog, just enjoy.

This recipe is something I made to go with Fajitas the other night.  It is nothing new but, I guess there is nothing really new under the sun.  It was just so tasty and the next day, it was even better.  If you have never tried it, let me recommend this melding of flavors.

I also thought I would include my easy fajitas as well, using bought, already prepared, fajita meat.  I am sorry that I forgot to take photos of the prepared feast.



1 large mango
2 large jalepenos (or 3 small ones)
1/2 poblano pepper
4 large tomatoes
1/2 large onion
1 large lime (not key limes)
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro

Chop all the vegetables and mango in very small pieces.  Squeeze the entire lime over the mixture.  Make sure this is a large, juicy lime.  Put the mixture in the refrigerator for a couple of hours in order to meld the flavors.  Serve with chips or over soft tacos or fajitas.


3 packages bought beef or chicken pre-cooked fajita meat (more or less as needed)
1 1/2 sliced onions
2 poblano peppers
2 red bell peppers
1 package fajita seasoning
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1 pkg corn tortillas

Slice your vegetables and mix in a gallon size Ziploc bag along with 2/3 of the fajita seasoning packet.  I just used a store brand.  Let it marinade in the oil and seasonings for about an hour.  Then pour them into a skillet and saute until a little tender.  Set the vegetables aside.  Put a little of the olive oil in the skillet or griddle and add the meat, sprinkling it with the remainder of the seasoning packet (if you think it is needed).  I used a griddle and spread the olive oil over it with a paper towel before adding the meat to it.  Heat the pre-cooked meat thoroughly.

Of course, fajitas and veggies cooked on a grill would be the best, but these indoor fajitas were quite easy and tasted wonderful.

Heat the corn tortillas in the microwave.  Serve them with fajita meat, the vegetable mixture, Mango Pico de Gallo, sour cream, salsa and pinto beans.

I am linking up with a few other bloggers.  After linking up with your recipe, check them out.

G’day. Thanks for dropping by my blog, and inviting me to join the party.
I hope you enjoy some muesli at least the maple syrup will be easier (and cheaper) for you to get hold of.

That sounds so good! I noticed that mangos were on sale last weekend, maybe I’ll pick some up and try this. I liked up to your party, I hope you don’t mind!

I am clueless as to why the link for “Made it on Monday” is having problems!
Usually you can link up Wed.-Sat……I am working on it now, thank you for the heads up!
Please check back later today, if your link isnt posted please link up again. I might have to redo it for some odd reason. Again thanks for baring with me!
