  • 10 ounces top sirloin steak strips
  • Steak fajita spice blend (cumin - dried Mexican oregano - ancho chile powder - granulated garlic)
  • 2 mixed bell peppers (such as red and yellow)
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 green or red fresh chile (such as jalapeño or serrano) (optional)
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 or 3 radishes (about 2 ounces total)
  • 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • 6 Mi Rancho Artisan corn tortillas (contain wheat)
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt

Chef's Tip

Here’s a time-saving way to warm all the tortillas at once: Heat the oven to 200°F. Lay a damp kitchen towel on a sheet pan. Arrange the tortillas on one end of the towel, overlapping them slightly; cover them with the other end of the towel. Heat in the oven until warmed through and just pliable, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand, still covered, until ready to use. Be careful of the hot towel when unwrapping.

If you prefer lightly browned scallions and bell peppers in your fajitas, in Step 2, cook the vegetables in batches, a few handfuls at a time, instead of all at once.

Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

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.
  • In a medium bowl, toss the steak with the steak fajita spice blend and season generously with salt.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons [1 to 2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the steak to a plate to rest. Do not clean the pan.
While the steak cooks and rests, prepare the bell peppers and scallions.

2

Prep and cook the bell peppers and scallions; finish the steak

  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell peppers; cut the peppers into ¼-inch-wide strips.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions into 2-inch lengths.
  • If using the fresh chile, remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; thinly slice the chile. Wash your hands after handling.
In the same pan used for the steak, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons [2 to 3 TBL] oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the bell peppers, scallions, and as much chile as you like. Season with salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the steak and any accumulated juices and cook, stirring occasionally, until the steak is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes for medium. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the steak–bell pepper mixture to a plate. Wipe the pan dry and set aside for the tortillas, if desired.
While the vegetables and steak cook, make the cucumber-radish salsa.

3

Prepare the salsa

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim off the ends; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Trim the ends from the radishes. Cut them in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Juice half the lime; cut the other half into wedges for garnish.
In a medium bowl, stir together the cucumber, radishes, cilantro, and lime juice. Season to taste with salt.

4

Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over the flame, or in the same pan used for the bell peppers over medium heat, warm the tortillas until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side.

5

Serve

Transfer the tortillas to individual plates. Top with the steak–bell pepper mixture, salsa, and yogurt. Serve with the lime wedges.
