Quick, Easy, Loved-by-all Fajitas!

Last night we all enjoyed Fajitas. This has become one of our easy “go-to” dinners that is really quick to make and everyone loves them. Our non-gluten people can choose either corn tortillas or corn taco shells. Our gluten people can choose flour tortillas or the corn-based options. The hardest part is getting all the sides ready!


Need: 2 iron skillets

1 package of stir-fry beef pre-cut into strips
seasoning of choice (taco or chili or salt + pepper)
1 red bell pepper (or color of choice)
1 medium-size onion
olive oil
corn tortillas
corn taco shells
flour tortillas (for the gluten-eating folks)
shredded lettuce
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
1 can black beans
lime, cut into wedges
avocados – smash green flesh to make guacamole; add lime juice, garlic salt, white pepper and cumin
cilantro, rinsed and chopped


Heat a splash of oil in each iron skillet over medium heat. Season the meat. Cut up the bell pepper and onion into strips and season. Place meat in one skillet and vegetables in the other. You can put all in one skillet, mine just aren’t big enough to cook all the items at once. Turn up heat and turn items over in pan to coat with oil. Meanwhile prepare the guacamole and get other items out.

When meat is cooked and veggies are tender turn off heat and call family to build their own fajitas.

Here is a suggested order of item placement in fajita. Meat, cooked veggies, beans, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, salsa, cilantro lime.
