Steak Fajitas

Makes: 4  servings Prep 30 mins Start to Finish 50 mins


  • 1 1 pound  skirt steak
  • 2 tablespoons  fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 10 ounce package 6-1/2-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons  olive oil
  • 2 large red and orange bell peppers, cut lengthwise into strips
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 cup  purchased salsa
  • 1/2 cup  grated part-skim sharp Cheddar
  • 1/4 cup  low-fat sour cream


1. Rinse steak and pat dry; cut to fit large skillet. Combine juice, cumin, and garlic in a large heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. Add steak, season with salt and pepper, then seal bag and turn until steak is coated well. Marinate at room temperature, turning bag occasionally, 30 minutes.

2. Preheat broiler. Arrange tortillas in a single layer on oven rack 4 inches from heat and broil until slightly crisp, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Add bell peppers and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Remove steak from marinade (discard marinade). Heat remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in skillet; add steak and cook, turning once, about 4 minutes (depending on thickness) for medium-rare. Transfer to cutting board and let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

4. Arrange steak on platter with bell peppers and onion. Serve tortillas, salsa, Cheddar, and sour cream on the side. Makes 4 servings.
