Secreto Fajitas

Secreto is a term used for a butcher’s secret cut. Crafted exclusively for Heritage Foods by master artisan Thomas Odermatt, our Secreto is cut from the short loin and brings 200 years of butchering tradition to your table.  

Ingredients
1 pack of corn or flour tortillas
2 bell peppers, sliced
1 jalapeño pepper, sliced
1 medium sized onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 limes, cut into wedges
(Optional)
Shredded cheese
Sour cream
Salsa
Salt and pepper

Procedure
1. Heat a skillet over medium high heat and drizzle cooking oil to coat the bottom. When the pan is lightly smoking, add the onions and garlic. Allow them to sweat and then stir in the bell peppers and jalapeños. Season the vegetable mix with salt and pepper, and continue to cook until soft. Drain and remove from heat.
2. For the Secreto: Bring the Secreto to room temperature before you begin. Drizzle cooking oil into a hot pan. Once the pan is smoking hot, sear the fattier side of the Secreto for about four minutes. Carefully flip the Secreto and sear it on the other side for another four minutes. Remove it from the pan and allow it to rest for about five minutes. Although the USDA recommends pork be cooked to an internal temperature of 145ºF, our chefs suggest cooking until a thermometer reads 135ºF as the temp will continue to rise while resting. Slice thin.
3. Assemble your fajitas with Secreto, a squeeze of lime and your choice of toppings!
