Smoked Pork Fajitas

Be sure to try the fajita sauce!

Fajitas are some of our favorite southwestern recipes. You can make a tasty fajita out of just about any type of meat, poultry or seafood, so they’re very versatile. Fajitas are also a great way to use leftovers, which is the way I created my smoked pork fajita recipe. We had slow-smoked a pork loin, and it was big. I shredded some of the leftover meat to make pulled pork, and I cut the remaining pork into strips and placed it in the freezer for future fajitas.

These fajitas were really tasty, especially with the simple sauce I made. The fajita sauce was a marriage of salsa and barbecue sauce, which was great with the smoky pork. As I said, I used meat from a bone-in pork loin, but leftovers from any type of pork roast would work.
