One pan meals? Yes! I hate doing dishes and the less dishes I have to wash the happier I am. Ask my kids about using 5 utensils for making a pan of soup. Drives me nuts! This is technically one bowl and one pan, but it works.
This meal is simple and the flavor was huge. I only added one rather large poblano pepper to the dish but you can add more if you like. I wasn’t sure if my family would like the flavors but they did and next time I will add more. This dish will work with chicken, beef, pork and other seafood too.
We loved this meal. It was so simple and the flavor was very good. I almost felt good about what I was giving the family for dinner. Fish, peppers, onions on a tortilla with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, sour cream, and salsa seems almost healthy.
I served this with a side green salad.
Leftover Hint: Make some rice and place the leftover Mahi Mahi Fajita mixture over the top. Sprinkle with cheese, sour cream and salsa for a hearty lunch. OR make a nice green salad and add everything to the top of the salad. My kids love leftover change ups!
