  • The meat will take the same amount of time to cook as the veggies as long as they are sliced to the same thinness.
  • If marinade is too dry, add a small amount of warm water.

Due to Hubs' sensitive innards, I omitted the Anaheim peppers, which effectively made these "Zesty Fajitas" as opposed to "Spicy Fajitas." I just made up for the omission by adding more bell peppers. I used "Fajita Seasoning," also from this site, for the fajita seasoning and I was very pleased with it. I used a combination of thinly sliced strip steak and shrimp, marinating them together with the seasoning and a dribble of water and olive oil. I sautéed the vegetables first, seasoned with the fajita seasoning and garlic. Once crisp-tender, I removed the mixture from the pan, then continued by cooking the beef and shrimp together. When that was cooked I combined everything together. Not only were these easy to throw together, served with a squeeze of fresh lime, some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream, they were awesome good too, a huge payoff for such little effort invested.

This is so good and easy to make. I had a beef round roast and used 1/2 the first day and liked this recipe so much made the rest the next. I had to go back to the store for the ingredients again. But it was well worth it!

These were awesome! Used the Fajita Seasoning recipe from this site. Will absolutely be making again!

These were very yummy! I loved how the Anaheim peppers made this a little different than normal fajitas. Next time I will either use a little more meat or one less pepper (depending on how many people I'm cooking for) because we thought the meat to pepper ratio was a little off. I will also try making my own seasoning (from this site) so that I can make it extra spicy! (We love spicy!!)

I can only find one small problem with this recipe. Over eating. The taste was fabulous and my husband was so satisfied with this meal. I did not use the packaged fajita seasoning I used the seasoning recipe from Allrecipes and wouldn't change a thing. Best round steak dinner I have had ever.
