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!

Beef Fajita Bowls
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
1 bag (1 pound) frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions
1/2 cup frozen whole kernel corn
1 cup thick & chunky salsa
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Cook rice as directed on package.
  2. Meanwhile, cut beef with grain into 2-inch strips; cut strips across grain into 1/8-inch slices.
  3. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; rotate skillet to coat bottom. Cook tortilla strips in oil 1 to 2 minutes on each side, adding additional oil if necessary, until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towel.
  4. Add beef to skillet; cook and stir over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Remove from skillet.
  5. Add bell pepper mixture and corn to skillet; cook and stir 1 minute. Cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring twice, until crisp-tender.
  6. Stir in beef, salsa, lime juice, chili sauce and cumin. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Stir in cilantro.
  7. Divide rice among bowls. Top with beef mixture and tortilla strips.

Serves 4.

I had a roommate who called this a taco salad. Minus the rice but still didn't look very salady to me. . . Or sometimes instead of a tortilla she would wrap it in a piece of iceberg.

My husband would love that you're serving it with Pacifico! :) Me? I'll stick with Corona. But this looks seriously delicious. And I'm up for anything that doesn't take long to cook.
