I’ve mentioned before how I am intimidated to make Mexican food for my Latino boyfriend, Albert. While I’m happy to make my faux Mexican dishes, I’m afraid of getting the “real” stuff wrong. That means I’m extra excited whenever he makes dinner.
Sneaking health in
Last night, Albert brought home some groceries to make a surprise meal. Together we cooked up some fajitas, and they turned out amazing! He showed me all his tricks while I “Stealth Healthed” the meal. I used the limited edition Activz Sweet Potato Powder. (I recommend getting some now before it’s gone.) It’s a nice and mild flavor that blended right in.
Make it your own
The great thing about fajitas is that they’re easily adjustable based on personal preference. Ingredients can easily be included or excluded during assembly, so everyone can have their meal exactly the way they like it. This recipe includes all the works, so feel free to pick and choose according to what your family likes. Whether sparse or loaded, these make quite a tasty meal!
- 2 cups rice (optional)
- 2 tomatoes (optional)
- 1 bunch cilantro, divided
- Guacamole (optional)
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 green bell pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 pounds beef steak
- 1/2 cup fajita sauce
- 2 teaspoons Activz Sweet Potato Powder
- Flour tortillas
- Mexican cheese
- Prepare your ingredients; slice bell peppers and beef, dice the tomatoes, and chop the cilantro.
- Prepare rice according to preference. Tip: Stir 1/4 cup cilantro and 1/3 cup tomatoes into rice before cooking.
- Make guacamole, if you are doing it by hand.
- Over medium heat, sauté the bell peppers in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Remove from heat when softened and slightly browned. Set aside.
- Using remaining two tablespoons of olive oil, start frying the meat. When it’s about halfway done, add enough fajita sauce to barely cover the meat, about 1/2 cup. Stir in Activz Sweet Potato Powder and a small handful of cilantro. Add the bell peppers to the mixture.
- Continue frying until meat is cooked through, about 15–20 minutes total.
- Heat up some flour tortillas. Place them one at a time in a pan over medium heat and let them sit until warm.
- Assemble the fajitas by putting rice, the meat and peppers, guacamole, a sprinkle of cheese and a little cilantro and tomatoes on the tortillas. Serve immediately.
