1 Lb. Carne Asada beef
2 Red, yellow or orange bell peppers, sliced into strips
1/2 Yellow onion, sliced
Flour tortillas, warmed
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 Tbsp. Chili powder
1 Tsp. Guarillo chili powder
1 Tbsp. Cumin
1/2 Tsp. Ancho chili powder
1/2 Tsp. Onion powder
1/2 Tsp. Garlic powder
2 Tbsp. Honey
2 Tbsp. Lime juice
1 Tsp. Kosher Salt
1/2 Tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt
1. Slightly freeze beef in freezer for about 15 minutes. Then cut into thin strips. Cut across the grain.
5. When ready to cook, remove marinated beef and veggies from refrigerator and let rest on kitchen counter for 15 minutes.
6. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with tin foil for easy clean up.
7. Pour the mixture on a baking sheet and spread it out. Bake for 8 minutes until meat is just starting to cook through and the veggies are starting to soften.
8. Heat the broiler to high and broil for 2-3 minutes, flipping the meat and veggies once to finish cooking.
9. Serve the cooked beef and veggies with all the toppings and warm tortillas and let your guest assemble their own fajita wraps.
NOTES: This is a fun and easy meal to pull together. I’ll often just put the tray down in the middle of the table (on a cutting board) and let everyone build their own fajitas. I’ll serve the toppings on the side on a platter, cutting boards or in small bowls.
It is a great communal meal that brings the whole famly or group together.
You don’t have to use carne asada beef. Sirloin steak, ribeye and skirt steak all work real well. You decide what looks good at the supermarket and work from there. For those that like a lot of heat, I’ll set out a bottle of hot sauce and/or sliced jalapeno.
