Chicken & Steak Fajitas

My husband requested chicken and steak fajitas and I have never made them before but I’m excited about how they came out, on my first try! This is a fun meal to make and eat! It’s for those days when you want a somewhat lazy dinner, that’s not too heavy on your stomach. Two of these delicious fajitas will definitely fill you up!





Ingredients:

  • Soft flour tortillas
  • 2 beef steaks
  • 3 chicken breasts (halved, it cooks a little quicker when it’s thinner)
  • 4 bell peppers (I like to use a mix of the colors) Sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic, minced
  • 2 limes, sliced
  • 16oz sour cream
  • 8 tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 cups Mexican-blend cheese
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 3 tbsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp red chili powder
  • 3 tbsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp onion powder
  • 3 tsp basil
  • 3 tsp oregano

Directions:

  1. Season your steak with 1 tbsp of each seasoning including 2 tbsp of olive oil and let rest for 30 mins.
  2. Season your chicken with 1tbsp of each seasoning and 2tbsp of olive oil and let it rest for 30 mins.
  3. Heat a skillet with 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 stick of butter and minced garlic.
  4. Add your peppers to the skillet and sautée it a little. Season it with 1 tbsp of each seasoning and then add your onions.
  5. Cook the peppers and onions for about 6-7mins until soft and set aside.
  6. In a clean skillet, heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil and place one steak at a time. Cook for 5-6 mins on each side. (Cook the steak according to your preference, we like ours medium-well).
  7. Set the steaks aside so the juices can settle.
  8. In a clean skillet, heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil and add your chicken breasts. Cook for about 3-4 mins on each side. You want the chicken juicy but not undercooked.

  10. Place soft tortillas on a sheet pan and bake for 3-5 mins.
  11. Thinly slice your steak and chicken and set aside. 
  12. Rub sour cream on each tortilla, place your peppers, then meat, then a dollop of sour cream.
  13. Now squeeze a lime on top and sprinkle some Mexican-blend cheese.
