- 1 lb beef steak, thinly sliced
- 1 lb boneless chicken breast, sliced
- 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp fajita seasoning
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- Flour tortillas for serving
- Optional toppings: shredded cheese, guacamole, sour cream
- Start by marinating the beef and chicken slices in fajita seasoning and a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Let them sit for at least 30 minutes to soak in those delicious flavors.
- Heat your cast iron skillet over high heat. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil and toss in the marinated beef and chicken. Sear them until they’re beautifully caramelized and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
- In the same skillet, add a touch more oil if needed and throw in the sliced onions and bell peppers. Sauté until they’re slightly charred and tender. Mix in the minced garlic for the final minute of cooking.
- Return the cooked beef and chicken to the skillet, giving everything a good toss to combine. The sizzle will crescendo as the ingredients harmonize.
- Present your sizzling skillet of fajitas on a heatproof surface, cautioning your diners that it’s as hot as it looks. Serve with warm flour tortillas and an array of toppings.
