*Healthy Steak Fajitas!*

*Healthy Steak Fajitas!*

My husband and I have recently started a new diet this year. We are both trying to get healthier for our daughter and each other. To eat healthier nowadays it gets a little expensive. I’m always looking through magazines and cookbooks for new recipes and trying to give them a little bit of our flavoring. One of our favorite healthy recipes are steak fajitas.

 

Ingredients:

1 pound of beef flank steak

2 medium green peppers

1 large onion

10-12 small tortillas

salt and pepper

 

For the marinade you need a package of fajita seasoning mix, two tablespoons of lime juice, and ¼ cup of water.

 

First you want to make your marinade. Combine water, lime juice, and seasoning mix into a small bowl. Place the steak and marinade into a Ziploc bag and coat the steak. Place the bag in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, turning it occasionally. Next you remove the steak from the marinade and throw the bag away. Chop up your onions and bell peppers. Then cook the steak to your liking. While cooking the steak, sauté your onions and bell peppers. They should be crisp when done sautéing. You can do this is the same pan or a separate pan as your steak. When the steak is cooked, cut it into smaller chunks. Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds. Put the steak on the tortilla and top with the vegetables.

 

You can add cheese or some sort of sauce but be sure to portion correctly to stay healthy.
