Ingredients

  • 1 lb thinly sliced sirloin steak or any tender steak
  • 6 flour tortillas about 10-inches/25 cm in diameter
  • 6 cups assorted salad greens
  • 2 bell peppers julienned
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 tbs oil

Fajita Seasoning:

  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp paprika hot paprika preferred
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

Instructions

  • Mix all the fajita seasoning ingredients in a small bowl; set aside
  • To make tortilla bowls, preheat oven to 400F/200C. Dampen the flour tortillas with a few drops of water. Mold them to shape on the exterior of fluted tortilla shaper bowls. If you don't have the shapers, see post for another method. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until the tortillas begin to brown and hold their shape. Remove from oven and cool completely. FYI you can make a bunch of these for later use.
  • Fill the tortilla bowls with about 1 cup of salad greens.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Add the thinly sliced steak and brown. Add the onion and cook until onion just becomes transluscent. Add the peppers and fry just until they turn a bright color. Add the fajita seasoning and stir well to blend.
  • Place the meat mixture on top of the salad greens in the bowl. Serve immediately
