When making fajitas I hate using the store bought packets of seasoning. I don't like the flavor at all. For this recipe I used a mix I found at Shark Recipes that seems to be just the flavor of seasoning I prefer.
1 Tbs. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. Oregano
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
Mix all the dry ingredients together. I then sprinkled half on the fajita steak and let sit for a little while. You can marinate a few hours with oil if you plan ahead. I didn't. I'm out of luck.
(act like I have a picture of this)
Steak of your choice. I used Sirloin.
1 Green Pepper
1 Red Pepper
1 Large Onion
Choice of toppings
Slice up your steak nice and thin. Sprinkle half of the previously mentioned spice mixture onto the meat. Let it sit for a few minutes while you cut up your veggies.
Heat up some oil in a pan. Throw your steak in. It will cook very quickly so keep an eye on it. Once it's cooked to your preference, take a slotted spoon and put it onto a plate while finishing up the veggies. You will have some juice left in your pan after the meat is done. Keep it there to cook your veggies in. There's lots of flavor and spices left in there!
Cook until just onions are starting to get color and peppers are soft but still have a little bite. Serve with toppings of your choice along with the guacamole recipe from yesterday. Yummy!
