How to Make Steak Fajitas

If you want to know how to make steak fajitas, look no further than this inspiring Mexican food recipe. Fajitas can be made with chicken, shrimp, or pork, but steak is wonderfully meaty and tastes great in this recipe. Steak is also healthy and rich in iron.

The different colors of bell pepper add a variety of slightly differing flavors as well as colors. Flank steak is a lean, tasty, boneless cut of meat, which comes from a well-exercised part of the animal. It is very tender. You might like to serve guacamole, tomato salsa, and sour cream on the side when you serve these steak fajitas.

A recipe for steak fajitas makes a really flavorful dinner and, once you see how simple they are to make and cook, you will want to make these again and again. You do not have to use three colors of bell pepper but it does give the fajitas a lively splash of color. Fajitas are normally served with the tortillas and filling separately, so people can build their own, adding whichever condiments they like, before closing the tortilla.

These are very simple to prepare. You just have to cook the marinated steak, cook the bell peppers and onion, and then assemble the fajitas the way you wish to have them. Typical Mexican flavors in this dish include lime juice, garlic and cumin. Fajitas are one of the most popular Tex-Mex dishes and you can also find them in some Mexican restaurants, even though they aren’t Mexican but Tex-Mex.

Serve these so people can assemble their own or make them up, as you prefer. Offer sour cream, salsa and guacamole on the side, and perhaps some hot sauce too in case anyone wants to spice their fajitas up further. These are so good and well worth making, because all the family will love them. Perhaps next time try shrimp or chicken for your fajitas, but do not miss out on the steak kind, because many people claim these to be the tastiest.
