- 1 lb flank steak, thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 green bell pepper, sliced
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Flour tortillas
- Toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa
- Start by marinating the thinly sliced flank steak in olive oil, minced garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes to absorb all those delicious flavors.
- Heat a skillet over high heat. Add the marinated steak and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until it’s nicely seared and cooked to your preferred level of doneness. Remove the steak from the skillet and set it aside.
- In the same skillet, add a bit more olive oil if needed. Toss in the sliced bell peppers and onions. Sauté them until they’re tender-crisp and slightly charred.
- Warm the flour tortillas, either on the skillet for a bit of char or in the microwave wrapped in a damp paper towel.
- Now, assemble your sizzling fajitas. Lay out a tortilla, add a generous portion of the seared steak, top it with the sautéed peppers and onions, and finish with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and a spoonful of salsa.
- Roll up the tortilla, and you’re ready to savor the Tex-Mex magic!
