Hola and Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! Wishing you could have a Mexican dish to go with your margarita? Well, just because you’re paleo doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a spicy south-of-the-border inspired fajita wrapped up in a yummy tortilla…and still stick to the paleo playbook…
All you need to do is marinade a little flank steak, whip up my easy recipe for gluten-free tortillas, chop some veggies and it’s time to celebrate today or any day of the year with hearty and healthy steak fajitas!
This is one of our favorite paleo meals. We’re big pepper and onion fans here, so sizzling fajitas and sautéed veggies are always at the top of our paleo menu. You should really give these a try and serve them to your family – who doesn’t love a great fajita? With a little salsa and guacamole on the side, you’ll be the hostess with the mostest. :)
We made these with flank steak but feel free to choose your favorite cut of beef. Cook your steak (or pre-cut steak fajita strips) on a grill or you can fry them up indoors on a hot skillet if you like. The aroma that floats through your kitchen will bring everyone to the table pronto. And all you’ll see are smiling faces looking at you waiting for that first spicy bite smothered in guacamole.
This is a great meal to share with family and friends. If your entertaining, make up the tortillas ahead of time or even the day before, and marinade your steak – give it at least an hour to soak up all those great flavors. When your guests arrive, you can enjoy a cold beverage with them and dinner will be ready in a snap!
Perfect for the coming summer!
Time to get your grill on! Enjoy!
