  • Ready In

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Footnotes

  • 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.
