Fast & Easy Dinner: Beef Fajita Bowls

Fast & Easy Dinner: Beef Fajita Bowls


Sometimes I think it's fun to take an ordinary dish and deconstruct it. Don't get overwhelmed, it's actually super easy. For example, instead of serving fajitas in a soft tortilla, serve them in a bowl over rice with crispy fried tortilla strips. Dinner comes together quickly in under a half an hour. By incorporating canned, frozen, and fresh ingredients, you create a meal that is layered with flavors and textures. Mash up a simple guacamole, chill the Pacifico and sit back - TGIF!

Betty Crocker

1 cup uncooked regular long-grain rice
1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 flour tortilla for burritos (8 inch) (from 11.5-ounce package), cut into 4x1/2-inch strips

2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons chili sauce
