Mexican restaurant-style dishes are always so popular, and our easy Beefy Fajitas made with our zesty marinated flank steak will take your family mealtime on a trip south of the border fast.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (1-pound) flank steak, cut across the grain into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas, warmed according to package instructions

What to Do

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt, and black pepper; mix well. Add steak to bag, seal, and shake until evenly coated.
     
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute peppers and onion for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add steak, discarding excess seasoning mixture, and continue cooking 5 to 7 minutes, or until steak is no longer pink inside, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in lime juice.
     
  3. Spoon meat mixture evenly down center of warmed tortillas, fold up, and serve immediately.

Note

For a complete south-of-the-border restaurant experience, serve these with salsa and sour cream. And why not start your fiesta with a nice bowl of soup?

IT was pretty good.But i make my with chicken or somtimes ground turkey or even sliced , since i can't chew red meat,but i add lots fesh vegts .Oh so yummy.Happycook diva

Very Good

Salt can be eliminated from this recipe by adding a bit of lime juice to seasonings and mixing well. Coat the meat with the seasonings, as in a wet rub and proceed. Anytime lime juice is used in cooking, eliminate or greatly reduce salt, as lime makes food taste as if it had salt added. Reason why? Salt and lime juice hit on the same point on the tongue, tricking your sense of taste. Great hint for those of us who are on a reduced sodium diet!
