Seared Spicy Fajitas

Kyle and I love mexican food, I found this recipe and knew that I had to try them. They are really easy and delicious.

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound skirt steak, cut crosswise into 2 equal pieces (if too large for skillet, cut into smaller pieces)
1 red bell pepper
1 onion
1 green pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
8 flour tortillas (6-inch)

thinly slice peppers and onions; season with salt and pepper

In a ziploc bag combine the coriander, cumin, salt and pepper. Add the steak and shake to coat

In a skillet on medium-high heat cook steak for 2-4 minutes per side for medium-rare

place the meat in foil

 fold up until tightly sealed

saute peppers and onion until tender; add 2 tablespoons of lime juice

place tortilla between 2 damp paper towels

 microwave for about 1 minutes until warm

assemble fajitas and top with your favorite toppings.


  1. I have never known what to use the coriander that came with my spice rack in. So this is exciting!
