Cooking (and eating) steak fajitas is such a summertime ritual. I love heating up the grill, having friends over and drinking a margarita (true story: I do drink the occasional margarita!).

I’m also slightly in love with my cassava flour tortillas, as they’re perfect for tacos and fajitas. You know what else I love? Making a big ‘ol double batch of those tortillas, then freezing them. This means I always have them on the ready for when I’m craving a Mexican inspired dish…which, is quite often. What can I say – I am a Cali girl!

If you make the tortillas ahead of time this steak fajita meal really is a snap. Just toss the marinade ingredients together in a ziploc bag and marinade the steak for 4 hours. Heat up the grill, cook the steak, toss the veggies together in a skillet, slice up an avocado or two and there you have it.

But what makes this steak fajita recipe so special is the marinade. The best steak fajitas have a tangy, lime, spicy flavor. To achieve that perfection (and as always, keep it gluten-free), coconut aminos are used. They’re combined with a little lime juice, cumin and cayenne pepper for that perfect steak fajita flavor. The goat cheese is optional, but if you can handle dairy, a sprinkle of goat cheese really tops them off!

Enjoy!

Author:
Serves: 4-6
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 lb flank steak or skirt steak
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 bell pepper, sliced (choose different colors for variety)
  • 2 avocados, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro
  • ½ cup crumbled goat cheese (optional)
  • 1 recipe Cassava Flour Tortillas
Marinade
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Make the cassava flour tortillas. These can be made ahead of time and frozen, then reheated when ready to use.
  2. Add all marinade ingredients to a bowl and stir. Pour the marinade into a ziploc bag (or shallow, covered dish) and add the steak. Marinade for at least 4 hours.
  3. Heat a grill to medium high heat. Add the steak and cook for 4 minutes each side. Let the steak rest on a cutting board for several minutes before cutting.
  4. While the steak is resting, heat the oil in a skillet (this is the one I use) on medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper slices and cook, stirring frequently for 4-5 minutes. Add the onion slices and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Slice the steak into long, diagonal strips.
  6. Assemble the fajitas by adding steak, grilled vegetables, slices of avocado, fresh cilantro and crumbled goat cheese to a tortilla.
