Sizzling Steak Fajita

Sizzling Steak Fajita

 

Make your own Steak Fajitas using homemade seitan, cut into strips, or try one of the vegan beef strips available on the market.

Preparation and Assembly Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 6 Fajitas

INGREDIENTS FOR FAJITAS

4 cups seitan strips or beefless vegan strips (see homemade seitan if you'd like to make your own, or use leftover BBQ Seitan)
1 package Simply Organic® Fajita Seasoning (about 1 oz), or the Mexican Seasoning of your choice
½ onion, sliced thin
2 large portobello mushrooms, sliced about ¼ inch thick (you can use 6 small mushrooms as well)
½ orange pepper, sliced
½ yellow pepper, sliced
1 can (14 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
4 tablespoons sweet corn chili salsa (we use Trader Joe's brand)
6 tablespoons salsa or pico de gallo
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
6 flour tortillas
guacamole (optional)
chopped green onions (optional)
Oil for sautéing (I prefer grapeseed oil)

SALSA AND GUACAMOLE

3 medium tomatoes, diced
1 bulb garlic, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 cup cilantro, washed and packed tightly
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon Mexican Seasoning or Simply Organic® Salsa Mix
2 tablespoons Simply Organic® Mole Sauce Mix
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
dash of ground cayenne pepper (optional)

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or Blender. For guacamole, mash 4 ripe avocados and mix in juice of 1 lime, salsa, and salt to taste.

DIRECTIONS FOR FAJITAS

  1. Sauté the seitan (or veggie beef) strips in a little oil and 1/2 of the fajita seasoning packet. Cook until the strips are a little crispy and covered with seasoning. Remove the strips and set aside.
     
  2. In the same skillet, add a little more oil and sauté the onion, mushrooms, and peppers with the remaining Fajita seasoning. Cook until the peppers are slightly softened.
     
  3. In a small bowl, combine the black beans and the sweet corn chili salsa. You are now ready to make the fajitas.
     
  4. Layer the ingredients (from the bottom) on the tortillas as follows:
         Seitan or Beef Strips
         Onion/mushroom/pepper mixture
         Beans (about 1 tablespoon)
         Salsa (about 1 tablesoon)
         Cilantro (about ½ tablespoon)
         Green onions and guacamole (optional)

Make 6 fajitas
