Fiesta Beef Fajitas

Oxmoor House
Yield Serves 4
Flavorful skirt steak is traditional in fajitas, but if your grocery doesn’t carry it, flank steak is also a good choice.


  • 2 pounds beef skirt
  • 14 1/2-oz. can tomatoes with chiles
  • 2 (1.12-oz.) pkgs. fajita seasoning mix
  • 1 onion, vertically sliced
  • 2 green peppers, sliced into strips
  • 8 to 12 (10-inch) flour tortilas, warmed
  • Garnishes: guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, shredded lettuce

How to Make It

  1. Place beef in a 4-quart slow cooker and set aside.

  2. Stir together tomatoes and fajita seasoning mix in a bowl; pour over beef. Cover and cook on high setting one hour; reduce heat to low setting and cook 8 hours.

  3. Add onion and green peppers; cover and cook on low setting one more hour. Remove beef and vegetables from slow cooker; shred beef with 2 forks. Serve beef mixture on warmed tortillas with desired garnishes.
