Monday nights are made for Fajitas

I am a big fan of Mexican cuisine. And i mean everything about it. But i have to admit that my favourite nights are those cold nights with some warm tortillas, pan seared beef, caramelized peppers, avocado, sour cream and lots of lime juice. 

 

Tortillas (Snack Day)

Everything starts with good quality tortillas. I prefer flour tortillas that are a bit more firm, soft and hold their shape. LIDL’s Snack Day flour tortillas are the best you can find out there for these fajita nights.

Beef

Good quality beef is always a prerequesite when it comes to meat. Originally, fajitas are made with skirt steak. But feel free to use your own liking when it comes to beef. Anyway, this is your dinner night, make it to your own liking.

 


 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Snack Day flour tortillas from  LIDL
  • 2 avocados (Peeled, Seeded and Sliced)
  • 1 package bell peppers (Yellow, Green, Red) sliced
  • 2 red onions (sliced)
  • 500g skirt steak or any cut of beef
