How to Make Authentic Beef Fajitas

Save

Beef fajitas are a versatile treat that can be made in many different ways. Authentic versions typically wrap the beef, peppers and vegetables in a flour tortilla.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 lb. flank or sirloin steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1 small can diced green chiles
  • 1/8 cup of cilantro, chopped
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • Sour cream
  • Guacamole
  • Cheddar cheese -- shredded
  • Salsa
  • Slice the peppers into strips. In a large skillet, saute the peppers and red onion in 1 tbsp. oil until they are crisp and tender. Remove the vegetables and set them aside.

  • In the same skillet, saute the steak, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in remaining oil for 2 to 4 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness. Return the vegetables to the pan, and add the chiles and cilantro.

  • Heat the flour tortillas in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds. Place them in aluminum foil to keep them warm.

  • Spread guacamole on a tortilla, top it with the steak and vegetable mixture, and then some of the salsa, cheddar cheese and a little sour cream. Roll up the tortilla to enclose the filling.

Tips & Warnings

  • if you want the fajitas spicier and hotter then substitute a small can of dices jallapenos for the small can of diced green chiles.
