Mexican Grilled Steak Fajitas; Muy Buenos Amigos
Recipe by

When summer time comes around, you can expect to see me outside grilling quite a bit (or for that matter during the winter, spring, fall, etc…) and when it comes to preparing fajitas, I don’t need to wait for Cinco de Mayo to get my grill on! Today I’m sharing my Mexican Style Grilled Steak Fajitas recipe that brings a nice spicy taste from our Central American neighbors to your backyard and kitchen.Grilled Mexican style steak fajitas with red peppers, onions, and seasoned steak from Paggi Pazzo.

So to get my Mexican style grilled steak fajitas, I season the steaks with cilantro, olive oil, and garlic powder and let marinade overnight. For the peppers and onions I dress lightly with olive oil and then add Goya Adobo seasoning. Get your grill nice and hot and throw those bad boys on there until nice and tender. Then take them off the grill and let cool before slicing the steak, peppers, and onions into long strips. Prior to, prepare all your other ingredients that you like in your fajita, whether it’s cooking beans or chopping tomatoes, etc… While the grill is hot, throw your tortillas on until they are slightly crispy (turning quickly for both sides) as you don’t want them to turn into a hard taco shell.

Now it’s time to throw your Mexican style grilled steak fajita together. I like to add salsa and lime on top of my finished steak fajita recipe but if you prefer guacamole or sour cream – by all means, indulge! The toppings that I prefer of tomatoes, shredded cheese, kidney beans (black will do as well), salsa, and lime provide a nice spicey-sweet burst of flavors, like Mexico’s legendary Hugo Sanchez sending fans into delirium from an incredible golasso! I enjoyed a nice, ice cold Corona with the fajitas but if you’re in the mood for something sweeter, try this margarita recipe. So there you have it, Paggi Pazzo’s Mexican style grilled steak fajitas recipe, Salud Amigos!
