Ingredients

  • 1 pound skirt steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 flour tortillas

Instructions

  1. Start by marinating the sliced skirt steak in olive oil, minced garlic, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. In a hot skillet, add a drizzle of olive oil and sauté the marinated steak until it’s beautifully seared and cooked to your desired level of doneness. Remove the steak from the skillet and set it aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add a touch more olive oil and toss in the sliced bell peppers and onions. Sauté until they’re tender-crisp and slightly charred.
  4. Warm the flour tortillas and assemble your fajitas. Fill each tortilla with the sautéed steak, bell peppers, and onions.
  5. Top your fajitas with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and a spoonful of salsa.
  6. Roll up the tortillas and secure them with a toothpick, creating a perfect fajita package.
