2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Sear the steak

  • Cut a small corner from the steak packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the steak browns, prepare the vegetables.


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; thinly slice the pepper.


Cook the vegetables; finish the steak

In the same pan used for the steak, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until just starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the fajita spice blend and steak and any accumulated juices and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the steak is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes for medium. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables and steak cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the root end from the lettuce; separate the leaves.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.


Transfer the lettuce leaves to individual plates. Top with the steak and vegetables, New Mexican chile salsa, guacamole, and cilantro and serve.
