Recipe

Do you know how hard it is to take a pretty picture of fajitas? Maybe it’s just me but after what felt like hundred of attempts, I finally just settled for this photo. The food was getting cold and I was on the verge of ruining the meal for a photo. But even though this photo isn’t the best these fajitas are simple and delicious. Start by whipping up your own fajita seasoning with spices you likely already have, toss in some flank steak and veggies, and you are good to go. I substituted flank steak in the recipe for a more traditional skirt steak because it is lower in fat and calories, but either would work. Serve up with your favorite fixings.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together all of the spices and the cornstarch to create your fajita seasoning.
  2. Using a ziploc bag (or bowl) toss the steak in 2 tbsp of lime juice and 1/2 the fajita seasoning. Let rest for 10 minutes. Start cutting your veggies in the meantime and toss them with the remaining fajita seasoning.
  3. Bring a large saute pan to medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add the beef and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked to your liking. Remove and set aside.
  4. Add the veggies to the saute pan and cook for 5-7 until softened. If needed add a couple of tablespoons of water to prevent sticking or burning.
  5. Add the steak back to the pan and toss to combine. Serve with flour tortillas and your favorite fajita fixings.
