In general, Canadians don’t do Mexican food very well. We have a few Mexican chain restaurants but nothing compares to the great food to be had in Mexico (where I had my first taste of what a real beef taco is!) or even in the US. After a trip to the US I came home and decided I had better figure out how to make my own steak tacos at home, because waiting months and months between travel dates just wasn’t going to work for me.
It’s so easy to make these Steak Tacos at home – anyone can do it, and I promise you, they’re delicious!
- 2 or 3 steaks, just a regular marinating steak, fast fry, etc.
- 1 tsp oil
- ½ red pepper
- ½ green pepper
- ½ onion
- 1 pkg Fajita Seasoning
- lime juice
- shredded cheese (cheddar or mozzarella)
- pico de gallo (optional)
- cilantro (optional)
- Slice the steak into thin strips and place in a frying pan. Slice the peppers and onions into strips and add to the frying pan - fry mixture until steak is browned.
- Add fajita seasoning, water (directions on pkg), and lime juice as desired (I never measure!)
- Cook until most of moisture is absorbed (you want the consistency to be like a fajita sauce but not runny or it will soak through the taco shells).
Spoon mixture into hard or soft taco shells (we prefer the soft ones because they are easier for the kids to bite into) and top with cheese, salsa and optional pico de gallo or cilantro.
