Mexican Fajitas Recipe

Fajitas are a Mexican-style dish traditionally made with grilled peppers and onions as well as steak or chicken. This version includes pico de gallo and guacamole to give it a truly south-of-the-border flavor.


  • 1 lb. steak or chicken, thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, any color, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4-6 tortillas, warmed
  • For garnish: Pico de gallo, guacamole, lime wedges, sour cream


  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell peppers, and steak or chicken. Sprinkle with the cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are tender and the steak or chicken is cooked through, 5-7 minutes.
  • Spoon the fajita mixture onto tortillas and garnish with pico de gallo, guacamole, lime wedges, and sour cream.
  • Serve immediately.
