Ingredients for Making Fajitas on the Blackstone
- Oil: I like avocado oil for high heat cooking, but use your favorite. I don’t recommend extra virgin olive oil for cooking on a Blackstone.
- Lime Juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice has the most flavor, but bottled works.
- Seasonings: Chile powder, salt, garlic powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper add the right punch of flavor. Paprika, onion powder, oregano, and black pepper are great additions.
- Chicken: I used boneless skinless chicken breast, but chicken thighs would also work.
- Onions: Yellow, white, or red onions will all work.
- Bell Peppers: You can use any combination of colors.
- Tortillas: Use corn tortillas or fajita-size flour tortillas.
Tips & Tricks
- I use a custom blend of seasonings, but feel free to use a packet of fajita seasoning if you prefer. (Taco seasoning works too.)
- Craving steak fajitas? Flank steak, skirt steak, or hanger steak are good options.
- Shredded Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Lime Wedges
- Tomatoes or Salsa

How to Make Chicken Fajitas on the Blackstone
For the full recipe, see the recipe card below.
To make this Blackstone fajita recipe, slice the chicken into thin strips.
Next, combine the oil, lime juice, and spices in a mason jar or blender. Shake or process until the mixture is combined.
Put the sliced chicken breast in a shallow dish or bowl and pour the fajita marinade over it.
Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Next, heat your Blackstone grill to medium-high heat and brush it with a thin layer of oil.
Add the peppers and onions on one side of the griddle and the chicken to the other side.
Cook until the chicken is cooked through (the internal temperature should be 165° F), and the veggies are lightly charred.
Remove from the heat.
Heat the tortillas until warm, about 1 minute. (Let the cooked fajitas rest while the tortillas are warming.)
Serve the meat and veggies in the tortillas with your favorite toppings.
