Goat Cheese Fajita Recipe

This fajita recipe uses goat cheese (chevre) as a flavorful substitute for sour cream and guacomole used in traditional fajitas. You'll love the unique taste and creamy texture of these fajitas.


  • 1 packet fajita seasoning
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 lb. chicken or beef, cut in bite-size pieces
  • 4 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 bell peper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 6 oz. chevre
  • 6 small flour tortillas

Combine the fajita seasoning, lime juice and water in a bowl. Add meat, and let marinade for at least one hour.

Remove meat from marinade, and cook in oil in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and peppers and continue cooking until tender, stirring frequently.

Stir in tomatoes and marinade, cover and lower heat. Simmer gently for about ten minutes, until tomatoes have cooked. Stir as needed to prevent sticking. Add a small amount of water, if necessary.

Spread approximately 1 oz. of chevre on each tortilla. Place the tortilla with chevre, tortilla side down, on a griddle or heavy skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
