Baked Beef Fajitas

I don’t know about you but around this house we LOVE Mexican food. We are in a stage with a toddler where going out to eat can be tricky because he doesn’t love to sit still. So, instead of going out for Mexican this week I decided to give it a go in the kitchen with some baked beef fajitas. I usually make baked chicken fajitas (recipe here) but wanted to switch it up a bit and give beef a try. I loosely followed this recipe from The Blond Cook . 

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of steak (skirt steak would be easiest but I used a sirloin and cut in half)
  • 3 bell peppers (I bought the package with 3 different peppers in it)
  • 1 onion chopped/sliced (I had chopped onions already so I used those)
  • Fajitas or Taco seasoning packet
  • Olive oil
  • Cilantro (optional)
  • Shredded Cheeses (optional)
  • Avocado (optional)
  • Salsa (optional)

First, pre-heat your oven to 375 or 400. I did 375 because I have an old oven and it is usually a little too hot. 

Next, slice the steak, onion and peppers into small slices. 

Throw it all in a dish, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle the seasoning. Stir until everything has a good coat of olive oil and seasoning (how much seasoning you add is personal preference) 

Bake on 400 for 20-30 minutes. Check the meat after 20 minutes to see if it is cooked to your liking. If it is still too rare I would add the additional 10 minutes. 

Once the meat is cooked all you have to do now is construct your fajita. I love shredded cheese, avocado and cilantro on mine but it’s your fajita so add whatever your heart or belly desires!
