Fajitas don’t need much explanation other than they are simple, fast and delicious. So let’s just cut to the chase and start cooking.
Ingredients- Serving 2 people
- 20 ounces top round steak
- 1/2 red bell pepper
- 1/2 green bell pepper
- 1 Tbs finely chopped red onions
- 1 Tbs shredded Cojita cheese (mexican cheese)
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 Tbs chopped cilantro
- 2 tbs Fajita mix (chili powder, ground fennel, ground cumin and cinnamon)
- 1 lime
Make the Guacamole
Scoop out both avocados in a small bowl and smash them with a fork. Add the chopped onions, salt, pepper, 1 Tbs chopped cilantro, and juice of 1 lime and mix well. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper to your taste.
Make the Steak
Slice the meat in thin stripes, sprinkle with salt, pepper, fajita mix and olive oil. At this point you can either pan fry or bbq or use a cast iron to cook the steak. I use a cast iron because I love the taste and it’s fast and easy. Be careful not to over cook the meat, it will cook really fast on a cast iron. Remove them from the grill while you still see some red parts.
Make the Veggies
Cut the bell peppers in thin stripes. You can either use the cast iron or use a skillet to saute them. Again, I used my cast iron.
Assemble the Fajita
Heat the tortillas either in the oven, on the skillet or the cast iron, 40-50 seconds on each side. Put the bell peppers, the meat and top it with the guacamole. Sprinkle with cojita cheese and the rest of the cilantro on top. You can serve with sour cream and black or refried beans. Enjoy!
