Traditional fajitas with a colorful twist of flavor. Feel free to garnish with cheese, sour cream, salsa, etc. when serving. I use thick flour tortillas warmed in the oven, Mexican queso, and crema fresca.

Due to Hubs' sensitive innards, I omitted the Anaheim peppers, which effectively made these "Zesty Fajitas" as opposed to "Spicy Fajitas." I just made up for the omission by adding more bell peppers. I used "Fajita Seasoning," also from this site, for the fajita seasoning and I was very pleased with it. I used a combination of thinly sliced strip steak and shrimp, marinating them together with the seasoning and a dribble of water and olive oil. I sautéed the vegetables first, seasoned with the fajita seasoning and garlic. Once crisp-tender, I removed the mixture from the pan, then continued by cooking the beef and shrimp together. When that was cooked I combined everything together. Not only were these easy to throw together, served with a squeeze of fresh lime, some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream, they were awesome good too, a huge payoff for such little effort invested.

This is so good and easy to make. I had a beef round roast and used 1/2 the first day and liked this recipe so much made the rest the next. I had to go back to the store for the ingredients again. But it was well worth it!


This was a great and easy fajita recipe. I would definitely do this again.
