What Are Fajitas?
Fajitas are a popular Tex-Mex dish made from grilled meat and served with onions and peppers. This baked version makes the process seamless and lends to an easy clean up!
All you need for this recipe is a sheet pan, cutting board and a knife.
Steak: I used two flank steaks for this. I like to use high-quality meat whenever possible. My favorite place to get meat is Butcher Box because they have organic and high quality options and it gets delivered right to your door! You can also feel free to substitute with chicken or another meat, if desired.
Peppers: I used 3 different colored bell peppers here. Feel free to use whatever colors you would like! You can also add additional vegetables, like mushrooms, if you wish.
Onions: I like to use sweet onions here, but feel free to use red onions as well.
Lime: I love using lime as part of the marinade for this! It adds a delicious zesty flavor.
Avocado Oil: I like to use high quality avocado oil. I love ordering all of my staples from Thrive Market because they have great prices and they deliver right to your doorstep. If you use my link, you can get 40% off your first order.
Sides and Additions: I used Siete Tortillas, avocado and refried beans as sides here. Feel free to add additional sides like pico de gallo, dairy-free cheese or dairy-free sour cream.
Step One: Preheat oven to 400 °F and gather ingredients.
Step Two: Next, chop the peppers and onions.
Step Three: Slice steak filets.
Step Four: Arrange steak and vegetables on sheet pan and season with lime, avocado oil and taco seasoning. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until steak if cooked to your preference. Serve with avocado, beans, tortillas and lettuce!
Feel free to store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
If you need ideas for what to do with the leftovers, here are some ideas: breakfast tacos with eggs (if you can tolerate), make it into a wrap, add it to a salad or serve it with rice!
To reheat: Feel free to reheat the leftovers in the microwave, on a baking sheet or in a skillet.
How do I know how long to cook the sheet pan?
This will be based on preference. Personally, I like my steak well done, so if you prefer your steak on the rare side, definitely check the pan after 10 minutes.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
Yes! Feel free to make this ahead of time and store in air tight containers for up to 4 days. This can be great for meal prep as well.
