Traditional fajitas with a colorful twist of flavor. Feel free to garnish with cheese, sour cream, salsa, etc. when serving. I use thick flour tortillas warmed in the oven, Mexican queso, and crema fresca.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine beef strips, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, onion, anaheim chile peppers, fajita seasoning, olive oil, and garlic in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

    Advertisement
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the beef and vegetable mixture in hot skillet until beef is no longer pink in the center and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

The meat will take the same amount of time to cook as the veggies as long as they are sliced to the same thinness.

If marinade is too dry, add a small amount of warm water.

Due to Hubs' sensitive innards, I omitted the Anaheim peppers, which effectively made these "Zesty Fajitas" as opposed to "Spicy Fajitas." I just made up for the omission by adding more bell peppers. I used "Fajita Seasoning," also from this site, for the fajita seasoning and I was very pleased with it. I used a combination of thinly sliced strip steak and shrimp, marinating them together with the seasoning and a dribble of water and olive oil. I sautéed the vegetables first, seasoned with the fajita seasoning and garlic. Once crisp-tender, I removed the mixture from the pan, then continued by cooking the beef and shrimp together. When that was cooked I combined everything together. Not only were these easy to throw together, served with a squeeze of fresh lime, some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream, they were awesome good too, a huge payoff for such little effort invested.

I can only find one small problem with this recipe. Over eating. The taste was fabulous and my husband was so satisfied with this meal. I did not use the packaged fajita seasoning I used the seasoning recipe from Allrecipes and wouldn't change a thing. Best round steak dinner I have had ever. Read More

This is so good and easy to make. I had a beef round roast and used 1/2 the first day and liked this recipe so much made the rest the next. I had to go back to the store for the ingredients again. But it was well worth it! Read More

These were very yummy! I loved how the Anaheim peppers made this a little different than normal fajitas. Next time I will either use a little more meat or one less pepper (depending on how many people I'm cooking for) because we thought the meat to pepper ratio was a little off. I will also try making my own seasoning (from this site) so that I can make it extra spicy! (We love spicy!!) Read More

Robust flavours!! I too cooked my peppers seperate from the meat as I was uncomfortable seasoning veggies and raw meat together (as i was always taught such). As suggested by others I made my own fahita seasoning. Thank you to the submitter for an easy and healthy recipe. Read More

I could not find the anaheim chile peppers at our little rural grocery store; so I substituted hot diced green chilies. Only other change was I used 1/2 of both the red and yellow bell peppers. This was awesome! Not super fiery hot but enough spice and fresh taste to make me want to do this one again. Thanks. Read More
