Easy Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas

If you know me at all, you know that there is one thing I can’t live without. Tex-Mex food.

I am completely obsessed. I would have tacos every day if I could!

And honestly, so would my family. I have passed my tex-mex obsession down to them. Not by choice, more out of the fact that they eat what I put in front of them and what I make is mostly tex-mex inspired meals. In fact, recently we went over to a friends house to hang out and ended up going to the grocery store to make stuff for dinner. She said, we know that if we have you guys over all we need is guacamole and you’ll be fine.

So so true! Even my son is a guac-aholic. When we go out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant he orders lemonade and then guacamole promptly after that.

I think part of my tex-mex obsession came from Bobby Flay. He is my culinary heart throb. Pretty sure I would pass out if I saw him in person. When I first started cooking, I made a lot of his dishes, which leaned more towards the latin food vibe. I became very familiar with those flavors. Latin American dishes are so flavorful and versatile and if you have a grasp on how to use some of the key ingredients you can make just about anything!

The other thing aiding to my tex-mex obsession is the fact that we live in Texas. Ahemm… Tex (short for Texas) Mex (short for Mexico)… gosh I’m so educational. Basically tex-mex is an American twist on authentic Mexican food. Some people love it, some people hate it because they like the authentic. I fall in the first category or maybe somewhere in between the two.

Today’s recipe is all about simple fresh flavors and easy cleanup. (cuz let’s be honest I’d rather spend more time eating then cleaning it up)

How to Make The Best Steak Fajitas

These Fajitas could not be easier to make. Just slice up the steak, peppers and onions … season them and put them in the oven for 15 minutes. Voila… “ready to eat” delicious steak fajitas!

Whenever I make tacos of any kind, my go to condiment of choice is usually not salsa. It is a fresh vibrant sauce called Chimichurri which is made with lots of fresh cilantro, lime juice, garlic and red pepper flakes. Once you try this stuff I guarantee you’ll be addicted! It’s amazing!

Can’t wait to hear what you think of these fajitas and how easy peasy they are to make AND cleanup!

Bon Appetit friends and happy Easter!
