It’s funny, fajitas have never been a particular favorite of mine, but I felt like having them last week and they turned out quite delicious! Perhaps I don’t like them because I’ve only ever had them at restaurants and the meat is always overcooked and chewy. Well, not mine as you can clearly see below šŸ˜‰



  • 1 pound skirt steak
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin


  1. Whisk together the olive oil, garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper, chili powder, and cumin.
  2. Place your steak in a bowl or ziploc bag and pour marinade over.
  3. Let the steak marinate for 24 hours max (preferable).
  4. I don’t have a grill (or grill pan), so I cooked mine in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. I love mine rare, but you can of course cook yours to whatever temperature you like.
  5. Once your steak is done, let it rest for about 10-15 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, put a little more oil into the skillet if needed and toss in the bell peppers, continuously stirring until they begin to soften.
  7. Toss in the onions and cook until translucent.
  8. Cut the steak into strips, going against the grain.
  9. Enjoy with your favorite guacamole or salsa (or both!)
