Finishing the steak fajitas – 15 minutes

Heat a little oil in a medium frying pan and sauté the onion for a few minutes. Add the red pepper strips and cook for a few more minutes over a high heat.

Heat a large frying pan over a high heat, fry the tortillas briefly on both sides (without oil or butter), then keep them warm under a clean tea towel.

Reheat the large frying pan over a high heat and fry the steak strips briefly. Be careful not to overcook the steak.

Sprinkle a little lettuce and tomato over a tortilla, then the cooked peppers and steak strips. Finish with a little sour cream and grated cheese, and squeeze over a wedge of lime.

Repeat for the remaining tortillas, enjoy!

Fajitas with steak: frequently asked questions

What kind of cheese is best with fajitas?

You can replace steak with chicken. If so, it’s a good idea to use yellow pepper, as it pairs well with chicken.
