Now, I don't actually have a steadfast recipe for fajitas because I make them a little different each time. But that's what's so great about them... you can customize them to your liking! And since I'm only feeding myself and my husband, I buy the larger tortillas and wrap them up like burritos. If you're preparing these for more people, then buy the smaller tortillas and serve them taco style with extra fixings.
Yields 4-6 servings
2 medium size steaks
1 box Zatarains Spanish Rice (Note: I also LOVE to make these with the Zatarains Black Beans & Rice)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
1 medium onion, sliced into thin wedges
1 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
sharp cheddar, shredded
Slice steaks into strips. Season as desired... I seasoned these with sea salt, fresh ground pepper, cumin, and garlic powder. Let steaks stand about 20 to 30 minutes after seasoning.
Meanwhile, prepare rice as directed on the box (I omitted adding the canned tomatoes).
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak. Cook about 7 to 9 minutes, turning only once. (Feel free to cook your steak a little more or less depending on how you like your steak prepared.) Remove meat from skillet and set aside. Add garlic, onion, and peppers to the skillet. Cook until tender. Return meat to skillet and cook a minute longer, or until heated through. Serve immediately.
To assemble burritos, place tortillas on a microwave safe plate and heat in microwave for 20 seconds (I heat the tortillas individually). Fill the middle of the tortillas with rice, meat and veggies, and cheese. Fold tortilla and enjoy!
