For the Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Steak Fajitas:

  • 1 1/2 pounds flank or skirt steak
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 8-10 flour tortillas
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)


1. Prepare the Marinade:

In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, lime juice, minced garlic, ground cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Place the steak in a large resealable bag or a shallow dish, and pour the marinade over the steak. Seal the bag or cover the dish, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight for the best flavor.

2. Cook the Steak:

Preheat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Grill the steak for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until it reaches your desired doneness. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes before slicing it thinly against the grain.

3. Sauté the Vegetables:

While the steak is resting, heat a bit of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced bell peppers and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred, about 5-7 minutes.

4. Assemble the Fajitas:

Warm the flour tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave. Place a few slices of steak on each tortilla, then top with the sautéed vegetables. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

Serve the steak fajitas with your favorite toppings such as sour cream, guacamole, salsa, and cheese. Enjoy your delicious, homemade steak fajitas!
