A simple, tasty meal in just a few minutes.  Did I mention EASY?

  • Bell peppers – any color
  • Sweet onion
  • Steak-ums or any kind of thin sliced or formed beef  (Suggestion…roast beef from the deli, sliced thin, works perfectly!)  I used Stake-ums when I made this for the blog.
Fajita 002
Slice Steak-ums into strips.  Stir fry until done.  Drain beef on paper towel.  Drain all grease from the pan and wipe clean.  (Do not cook the meat with the peppers and onions. It will be greasy! Yuck!!!) 

Add a drizzle of canola oil (or whatever oil you prefer) to your cleaned pan.  Season your peppers and onions according to your taste.  I use salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder.  Add the sliced peppers and onions and then stir fry until the onions approach translucent stage.  Add beef back into the pan, mix well, then place a small amount of the mixture on a flour tortilla.

Fajita 012
I like to warm the tortilla just a bit before eating.  I roll, then secure with a toothpick.  Ten SECONDS in the microwave is enough for me.  Or, you can just roll it up and eat it without warming.  Your preference….

This is good with slices of chicken too.  Just make sure you cook the chicken all the way through!

Bon Appetit   (LOL…I watched Julie & Julia last night)

  1. This looks mouth watering delicious!! I am going to have to try this one!!! YUMMY! Looks like it would be a crowd pleaser at my house!


  2. I bet your kids would love to build their own. It's fun like tacos...

  3. Those are my fav seasonings plus I would have to add garlic and I have been using Chipotle chili powder, instead of chili powder.
    These look yummy and easy and I like both of those things. I would have to add cheese though. lol Everything is better with cheese.

  4. Cheese!!! *smacks forehead* LOL... I wonder why I didn't think of that. Great idea. I haven't seen chipotle chili powder. I'll have to look for that at the store. I did buy some Mexican spices that are for chicken fajitas. I just haven't tried it yet. Just bought it this week. I'm going to add cheese next time! Thanks for sharing that idea with me!!!
