Grilled Beef Fajitas

Servings 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak trimmed
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 6 10-inch whole wheat flour tortillas warmed
  • 3/4 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup low fat sour cream
  • cilantro chopped


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate beef and refrigerate beef overnight (see recipe). Pierce flank steak with a fork.
  • In a large zipper-topped plastic bag, combine lime juice, chili powder, cumin and garlic; gently shake to combine. Place beef in the bag; seal and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
  • Preheat outdoor or indoor grill or oven broiler. Remove meat from bag, discarding marinade and bag. Grill steak to desired level of doneness then transfer to a cutting board and allow it to sit for 10 minutes to redistribute its juices.
  • Thinly slice beef across the grain (diagonally). Arrange beef slices down the center of each warmed tortilla; spread with 2 tablespoons of salsa and 2 tablespoons of sour cream then top with plenty of chopped cilantro.
  • Fold and chow down! Serve with additional salsa and sour cream, if you like.
