Steak Fajitas Ingredients

Flank Steak – You’ll need about a pound of the steak for this recipe.
Onion – Dice your onion into small pieces.
Garlic – Mince your garlic into small pieces to go with the onion.
Fajita Seasoning – Use around two tablespoons of fajita seasoning.
Rotel – Drain the Rotel and add the rest of the can into the slow cooker.
Green Pepper– Slice the green pepper into thin pieces.
Red Pepper – Do the same with the red pepper, slicing it into thin pieces.
You’ll also need salt, pepper, yellow peppers, small flour tortillas, and optional garnishes, such as cilantro, guacamole, avocado slices, pico de gallo, and more.
How long does it take to prepare this Steak fajitas recipe?
It will take around eight hours and 15 minutes. You’ll only need 15 minutes of your time to prep the ingredients. However, the steak will cook low and slow for eight hours, giving you plenty of time to do other things before dinner.
Can I double this recipe?
Absolutely. If you need to make more than enough for four people, feel free to double the recipe. Even a smaller crockpot can hold at least two times the amount of the servings if need be, so double the recipe if you’d like.
What type of fajita seasoning should I use?
You can use any brand of fajita seasoning that you prefer. If you’ve ever tried a brand before and liked it a lot, use that to make this steak taste even better.
Can I use taco seasoning for this recipe?
Yes, you can replace one packet of fajita seasoning with taco seasoning. However, taco seasoning tends to have a bit more chili powder, so it may make these fajitas taste a bit spicier. If you don’t mind that, it’s fine to use the taco seasoning.
Recipe Notes & Tips
Serve these fajitas with your favorite toppings. They taste amazing when prepared with fresh salsa, sour cream, guacamole, avocado slices, and shredded cheese. Use what you like to customize the fajitas to your liking, making them that much more enjoyable.
If you don’t like flour tortillas, it’s fine to use corn tortillas. They’ll taste just as good with the steak and toppings that you choose to use.
This dish isn’t spicy. However, if you’re a fan of spicy foods and would like to kick up the heat, feel free to add some jalapeno peppers or even serrano peppers to the crockpot. You can also add these peppers as a topping to your fajitas for added flavor, whichever you prefer.
Instead of going out to the restaurant, enjoy these Steak Fajitas made at home. You can prepare your ingredients in 15 minutes or less, allow your meat to cook low and slow, and then serve it on tortillas with assorted toppings for an incredible meal.
They’re incredibly versatile too! You can serve them on these on warm tortillas as I did here, as an entree with rice & refried beans or as a low carb lunch to top your salad and a side of cauliflower rice!
