What You'll Need:
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons fajita seasoning, divided
pounds lean flank steak, cut into 6 pieces
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
Shredded Cheddar cheese
What To Do:
- Layer first 4 ingredients in a 5-quart electric slow cooker. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning. Top with flank steak; sprinkle with salt and remaining 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning. Spoon drained tomatoes and green chilies over steak.
- Cover and cook on HIGH setting 1 hour; reduce heat to LOW, and cook 6-1/2 more hours.
- Remove meat, and shred with a fork. Combine shredded meat with vegetable mixture in slow cooker.
- Wrap tortillas in wax paper; microwave at HIGH 30 seconds. Spoon steak and vegetable mixture over warm tortillas; wrap or fold tortillas around mixture. Serve with cheese and sour cream.
- Make this a freezer-friendly recipe: Follow steps 1-3 above. Allow the shredded meat and vegetable mixture to cool, and then spoon mixture into a freezer-friendly container or baggie. Place in freezer. When ready to eat, place the frozen entree into fridge to thaw for 24 hours in advance. Then reheat, serve with warm tortillas and toppings, and enjoy!
