When I pick-up the pop!TOT from school and come home I need quick and easy meals I can make in less than 30 minutes that we can both enjoy. We both LOVE mexican so I figured let’s make Fajitas! Classic fajitas are typically made with grilled strips of skirt steak, onions and bell peppers served on a sizzling hot plate with fresh tortillas and guacamole, but I didn’t have time for all of that. (Insert soundclip “Ain’t nobody got time for that” lol) You can easily make fajitas with packaged steak or chicken which cuts down the time significantly. Plus if you make everything in one pan there is also less of a mess. My kinda dinner. Here’s my quick and easy recipe for Angus steak fajitas and Mexican Corn.
Angus Steak Fajitas
- 1 package Angus Steak Strips
2 tbsp olive oil
- 2-3 bell peppers of various colors, stemmed, seeded, de-ribbed, sliced lengthwise into strips
- 1 Jalapeño
- 1 large yellow onion, peeled and sliced
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp garlic minced
1 tbsp Goya Recaíto (A mix of onions, garlic, ajicitos, green bell pepper, green cubanelle and lots of cilantro and culantro)
4 Soft Flour Tortillas
- Set a large non-stick pan or griddle over high heat and let this heat up for 1-2 minutes.
- Add the oil to the pan and let this heat up for 1 minute.
- Add the steak and brown, then season with all of the ingredients for about 5 minutes
- Add the peppers and onions and stir for about a minute
To serve, spoon a portion of the beef mixture down the center of each tortilla, top with your desired toppings
Mexican Corn on the Cob
- 2 cobs of corn
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 4 lime wedges
- 1/2 cup of cotija cheese, crumbled
- Cayenne to taste
- Bake the corn (in husk) in a preheated 350°F oven for 25 minutes.
- Let the corn cool until you can handle it and pull husk layers down, leaving them attached to the base of the cob, which can act as a handle.
- If desired, to blacken, put in the broiler for a few minutes. Be sure to cover the husk in aluminum foil so that it doesn’t accidentally get burned in the flames.
- Remove from the broiler once desired color is achieved and spread the butter on the corn
- Sprinkle on the cheese and season with cayenne pepper to taste
- Squeeze lime juice over the corn
