Why we love it:

You know that moment when fajitas come steaming out of the kitchen on a hot sizzling platter and cause a delicious smelling scene throughout the restaurant and you wish you had ordered them too? Yea, that’s this dish. If you have a cast iron skillet, you can heat it up in the oven until it’s scorching hot and then add the peppers to it for effect, but even minus the sizzle, the taste is here.


  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 12 teaspoon Black Pepper (freshly ground, to taste)
  • 1 pound Flat Iron Steak
  • 212 Tablespoons Canola Oil (divided)
  • 2 Bell Pepper (Orange, Yellow or Red)s (cut into strips)
  • 1 Red Onion (cut into wedges)
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese (or shredded mexican blend)
  • 4 Tablespoons Sour Cream (or shredded mexican blend)
  • Flour Tortillas

Cooking Instructions


    Preheat outdoor grill to medium high heat if you’d like to cook outside.

  • 2. SPICES

    In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Season steak with chili powder mixture.

  • 3. SEAR

    Brush steak with 1 Tablespoon canola oil for the outdoor grill. Or warm that oil in a cast iron skillet indoors over high heat. Add steak to grill or pan, and cook, flipping once, until desired doneness, about 4 - 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest off of the heat for 5 minutes.


    Slice the bell peppers and onion into 1” thick strips. Season with remaining 1 ½ Tablespoons canola oil; and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Add bell peppers and onion to grill or pan, and cook, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, about 6 - 8 minutes.

  • 5. SLICE

    Thinly slice steak against the grain and platter.


    Slice avocado, add cheese and sour cream. Warm the tortillas in the oven or over the grill until just pliable.

  • 7. SERVING

    Serve on plates or in family sized platters.
