Easy, Quick Paleo Fajitas

Quick Fajitas For Four

This is one of the easiest and most satisfying dinners to whip up. It’s full of flavor, different textures, and yummy fats to fill in the gaps. As long as I have plenty of veggies and guacamole, I don’t miss the tortillas, rice and beans.

If you’re looking to shorten the prep time, which is already pretty short, I recommend the following: all found at Trader Joes. Sub the steak out with TJ’s already cooked grass fed top sirloin steak, get their ready–to-go fajita veggies and grab a container of their guacamole.  I like the version below a little better but hey, time is time and this short cut works just fine!

Ingredients

2 TBSP avocado or coconut oil

2  lbs Skirt or flat iron steak or any tender steak thinly sliced

½ tsp garlic powder

1 tsp Real salt

1 tsp. ground cumin

3 Zucchinis sliced on the diagonal

8 Green Onions with the tops and ends cut off

2 Red onion sliced into wedges

1 Bell Pepper-seeded and sliced (I prefer red but any color will do)

Guacamole:

2 ripe avocados

¼ cup finely chopped red onion

2 Tbsp. Lemon juice

½ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp real salt

Garnish

1/2 cup chopped Cilantro

1/2 cup sour cream Sour Cream

Directions:

Rub the meat with salt, garlic powder and cumin and set aside.

Then prepare the Guacamole: Pit and scoop out avocado into a medium bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix together until blended. I like to keep a pit in the guac to keep the color and flavor fresh.

Fajitas:

Pour 1-2 Tbsp of the oil into a cast iron or heavy frying pan, add the vegetables and remaining cumin and salt and saute over medium high heat until tender. Remove and place on a warm surface while you cook the meat.

Add a little more oil to the pan and wait a minute for it to sizzle. Then add the meat and quickly sear on each side for about 2 minutes or longer if you prefer your meat more cooked.

To serve, I like to put the meat in the middle of the plate and flank it with the vegetables, top with guacamole, sour cream and cilantro.

I hope you enjoy this new way of eating and preparing fajitas! Your body will say THANK YOU!
