Recipe: Baked Steak Fajitas

September 16, 2015

Recently, the last thing I've wanted to do is cook. After a long day of work, physical therapy and everything else, cooking a paleo dinner is not at the top of my list. I've been trying to be diligent in meal planning for the week and picking meals that are easy to cook. But I still don't want too.

It's no secret that Adam and I have a thing for mexican food. On our cheat days, we always go for mexican, so I knew when I found baked fajitas I had really hit the jackpot.

I made this after a long weekend out of town filled with drinking and lots of indulging. This meal was easy, delicious and super filling. In this recipe, I made my own fajita seasoning which makes it a tad more complicated, so if you want it to be a little quicker grab one of those 36 cent packs of seasoning at the grocery store! For our finished product we added some diced tomatoes, sliced avocado and cholula (obvs). P.S. The leftovers are just as good, if not better! Enjoy everyone!

  • 2 small white onions
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced thin 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
How to Make: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Mix all of the seasoning ingredients and set aside. 
  3. Cut the onions and bell pepper into small strips. 
  4. Place the veggies and the sliced chicken in a large glass casserole dish. 
  5. Sprinkle the mixed seasoning over the mix. Then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons oil and mix together. (Take those rings off ladies and use your hands!) 
  6. Bake in oven for 40 minutes. 20 minutes and toss, 20 minutes and done! When it comes out of the oven, squeeze that lime all over it!
  7. Enjoy!
 next time I'll probably add more bell peppers. 
 mmm steak
 post-oven, look how tender and delicious that looks!
voila! enjoy! 


  1. Yummy! That avocado on top is like icing on the cake!!!

  2. I always order fajitas at restaurants, but I've never tried to make them myself. This looks easy enough and good. I'll have to try ti!

  3. Yay! I have meat defrosting right and I didn't know what I was going to do with it. I'm going to try out this recipe tonight!

  4. This looks so darn good! I love beef lol! Pinning! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Fajitas are my favorite thing to order when we go to restaurants. I will have to try to make these at home!
