Beef Fajitas

Posted on December 19, 2011.


Beef Fajitas are a fun and fast dish to make. It is also a great way to use left-over steak from last nights dinner. The traditional method is to serve the Fajitas over tortillas, but we prefer the healthier version by using iceberg lettuce shells instead of tortillas.


1-2 lbs beef round cut in 2-3 in strips
5 cloves garlic
1/2 habanera pepper
1/4 cup cilantro
1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix (see recipe)
8 corn tortillas
1 red bell pepper, sliced in thin strips
1 green bell pepper, sliced in thin strips
1 yellow onion, sliced in thin strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & pepper


In a food processor, mix garlic, cilantro, and habanera pepper until minced.

In mixing bowl, mix meat with garlic/cilantro mix, taco seasoning, olive oil, salt & pepper. Mix thoroughly and transfer to a plastic storage bag, seal, and let stand for at least 1 hour.

In pre-heated pan, add olive oil and heat until very hot. Add meat and stir occasionally until meat is browned on all sides (approximately 5 minutes). Then add peppers and onion and stir-fry until vegetables are lightly browned, yet still crisp.

Pre-heat tortillas as follows: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread a slightly damp paper towel or napkins on a baking sheet, and then cover with the tortillas. Add another layer of slightly damp paper towel or napkins. Bake for 5-10 minutes.
