If you love fajitas but you hate all the prep work that goes into making them, then you're going to enjoy our all-in-one shortcut that'll allow you to have ready-to-go fajitas whenever you want!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 large onions, cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 pound flank steak, cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons dry fajita seasoning
  • 10 (7-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) sour cream
  • 1 cup salsa
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 
     
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Add onions and peppers and saute 10 to 12 minutes, or until onions are lightly browned; place in a large bowl and set aside.
     
  3. Heat remaining oil in the same skillet and add flank steak. Add fajita seasoning and saute 3 to 4 minutes. Return vegetables to skillet and cook 3 to 4 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
     
  4. Place 1/3 cup of the mixture into each tortilla and roll up; place seam-side down in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese, then cover with aluminum foil.
     
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until heated through. Serve fajitas with sour cream and salsa.

 

  • You can make these fajitas ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate them after filling and rolling, then bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees F. before serving.

What exactly is the shortcut? Wrapping up everyone's fajitas and melting the cheese on top? My idea of a shortcut would be to not have to chop the veggies and the meat. That's what takes so long.

I do not know where you live but if you in Florida, Publix Grocery Stores usually have Fajita fixings already cut up and seasoned in the Meat Department. All you have to do is cook it up. This saves a lot of time. The first time I made this, I bought that and it worked out perfectly :)

sounds good will try to make it just do not know when i will

Due to allergies, we have a gluten-free kitchen, so we used white corn tortillas--it was very tasty and travelled well--I'm sending leftovers in my daughter's lunch tommorrow! I didn't know if the peppers and onions would be good as make-ahead, but they were!

Husky Roasted Corn

Native Americans cooked their corn right in the husks over an open fire, and we think their idea is still best, 'cause it helps bring out flavors you can only get from roasting. We love making our Husky Roasted Corn right on the grill in the summer, and in our ovens when it's cooler out!
