#BeefItsWhatsForDinner #BeefCheckOff #MC Disclosure

With school back in session, days can be hectic!  After-school activities, homework, and bam! dinner time comes fast.  I wish I could say I prepared a week’s worth of meals on Sunday and just pulled a delicious home cooked meal out of the fridge, but I’m just not that mom.

A quick and easy meal for us is fajitas.  We love Mexican food and I especially like the spicy beef contrasted with the freshness of the salsa.

#BeefItsWhatsForDinner #BeefCheckOff #MC Beef Fajitas Recipe


Here’s the recipe!

Beef Fajitas


1 pound of beef (I recommend top sirloin which is a very tender cut of beef)

1 large green peppers

1 large yellow peppers

1 large red peppers

1 medium white onions

1 packet of fajita seasoning mix

3 tablespoons of olive oil

Flour tortillas


Sour Cream






Refried Beans


Cut the beef, peppers, and onions into thin strips.  Follow directions on the fajita seasoning mix in skillet.  Add beef first and cook until no pink remains.  Remove from skillet.  Add peppers and onions and cook until soft.  Add beef back into skillet and cook both together for two to three minutes.

Throw a brightly colored table runner on the counter, line up your “Fiesta Buffet”.  Let family members assemble and enjoy!

Tip:  The thinner you slice the beef and vegetables, the faster they will cook.

A better cut of meat like the Top Sirloin will be more tender, even if sliced thin and cooked quickly.  A cut like Flank Steak can also be used, but should be marinated and cooked more slowly to achieve the same tenderness.
