How To Make Spicy Steak Fajitas
Prep and Marinate: In a zip-lock bag, combine steak strips, chili powder, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, and lime juice. Add a dash of olive oil. Seal the bag and give it a good shake, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Let the flavors marry.
Veggie Time: Add the thinly sliced bell peppers and onion to the bag. Seal and shake again. It’s like a party in a bag!
Sizzle and Cook: Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Empty the contents of the bag into the skillet. Let the symphony of sizzling begin! Cook until the vegetables are tender but still have a bit of a crunch, and the steak is cooked to your liking.
Assemble and Serve: Warm the tortillas, and then lay them out like a canvas. Spoon the steak and vegetable mix onto each tortilla. Sprinkle generously with grated Mexican blend cheese. Roll up or fold, and get ready to dive into a world of flavor.
Optional: Add your favorite toppings like sour cream, guacamole, or salsa to elevate the fajita experience.
