Easy Steak Fajitas

I LOVE Fajitas! They are right up there with rainbows and unicorns for me, actually probably higher… This is an easy recipe for making some REAL tasty fajitas with minimal time and effort!

My husband grew up with fajitas almost weekly (lucky duck!) but it kind of burned him out on them, (insert sad sad eyes and quivering lip here) don’t ask me how that is possible but none the less I am restoring his faith in the delicious Fajita one corn tortilla at a time. He’s coming around and I find if I call it something different like a “burrito” or “taco”, he will more happily eat these without complaint. but shhh… don’t tell him my jedi- mind tricks. I might get edgier and start to call these “fajittos” or “fajacos” just to warm him up to the idea and to calm the small amount of wife guilt I feel when I mislead him.

At any rate and WHATEVER you want to call them, these are super DELISH, quick and easy! Perfect for a weeknight dinner but flavorful enough for a weekend party or to entertain guests and make them gawk at your mad Fajita Skills. You can even pat some flour on your face just to make it look like you worked really hard on these!

Plus they are pretty much a finger food so that means you could literally double fist these babies if that is your intention… though I think a more refined double handed grab with a slight head tilt and bite approach might better allow you to savor the flavors going on in there!

However you eat them and who ever you eat them with, I hope they bring a smile to your face and fill your day or night with positive vibes!

Keyword: Beef, Bell Peppers, Corn Tortillas, FAjitas, Meat, Mexican, Peppers, Steak, Tacos
Servings: 6 people


  • 2 Pounds Beef Steak- cut of Choice, preferably something without a bone I like to use Petite sirloins because they are inexpensive and still taste great in this recipe
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 large onion Sliced into strips
  • 1 Red Bell pepper Sliced into strips
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper Sliced into strips
  • 1 Lime


  • Mix together the Salt, Chili Powder, Cumin and Garlic Powder in a small bowl.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the steaks with the spice blend, using about 3/4ths of the mixture.
  • Preheat a frying pan on medium high heat and add 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil.
  • Sear Steaks in Frying pan on medium high heat and let sit for roughly 4-5 minutes before turning over (adjust heat if they start to burn) and continuing cooking for 3-5 minutes more. This should get your steaks to a medium rare state. Adjust cooking time as needed or desired.
  • Let Steak rest before thinly slicing.
  • Slice up onions and Peppers into strips. Sprinkle vegetables with 1/4 of the spice mixture.
  • Heat 1 Tablespoon of Olive oil in a frying pan and cook the onions and peppers over medium high heat for about 5-6 minutes. Reduce heat if they start to burn. They should be slightly softened yet still firm. Once done cooking squeeze the juice from one lime over mixture.
  • I would suggest serving on warmed corn or flour tortillas and top with Fresh Cilantro, cojita cheese, Salsa, sour cream and guacomole.
