Beef Fajitas

After the delicious roast beef Sunday night, I needed to use up the left overs, but with the week being what it was, it had a be quick, easy and potentially portable.  Enter: beef fajitas.

Around here there is nothing hubby loves more than smelling onions and peppers sauteing in a skillet.  If you had asked me 30 years ago, I'd of said I WOULD NEVER COOK/EAT THEM.  Oh, how things change.

This is a super easy recipe and, as I said, fits our needs on this super crazy week.  I can stir fry it up, pop it in a container to keep it warm, bring along some soft tortilla shells and fill them as the hungry hoard is ready!  Tote along a small container of shredded cheese and they will all be happy.

Beef Fajitas

1 onion
1 pepper (or several smaller sweet peppers)
Leftover beef
olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
soft taco shells

  1. Heat olive oil, salt & pepper in a skillet.
  2. Slice onions and peppers and add to skillet.  Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Slice beef into strips and add to skillet.  Cook till meat is heated through.
  4. Warm taco shells in the microwave or use cold.
  5. Spoon mixture into each one and top with a bit of cheese each.
  6. Eat and enjoy!

Fajitas of any kind are a great way to stretch a small piece of meat, get in some veggies and mix it up.
