Beef Fajitas

Serves: 4

1 lb. beef steak, cut into strips
2 T. oil
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 onion, cut into strips
Flour or corn tortillas
Toppings: cheese, fresh cilantro (optional)

In a medium bowl, combine oil, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add in beef strips and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. In a large skillet over high heat, saute the beef strips in marinade with bell pepper and onion strips for 6-8 minutes or until beef has cooked through and the peppers and onions have softened. Serve in warmed tortillas and top with cheese and cilantro.

Tips: These fajitas were easy to put together and tasted wonderful! We used top sirloin steak that we already had in the freezer so our beef was very tender. Obviously there are a plethora of good toppings for fajitas including guacamole, sour cream, salsa, pico de gallo, etc. Cheese and cilantro are what our family used. My husband and I chose to use corn tortillas and heated them slightly in the same skillet we cooked the meat in. I highly recommend doing this. I did use flour tortillas for the kids, however since I could roll them up burrito-style and make it easier for them to hold.
