Sheet pan steak fajitas are a one pan wonder that take little effort to get on the table. Serve them with warm tortillas and all your favorite toppings for a scrumptious meal everyone will love.
Who doesn’t love an easy one pan meal, am I right? That’s exactly what these fajitas are and boy do they taste amazing. Believe me, my family’s excited every time it’s fajita night!
I am a big fan of Mexican food and I always love a meal that’s easy to prepare. These fajitas are full of bold flavor and are so easy to prepare. The prep work is minimal and they take less than 15 minutes to roast in the oven.
It’s a meal that works great for everyday weeknight meals as well as casual weekend entertaining. Both kids and adults alike will devour these. I mean really, is there anyone who doesn’t like fajitas?
What I like is everyone gets to make their own. They can top it with whatever they like. Don’t like guac? Not problem, don’t add any to yours. You really like peppers and onions? Pile them on!
If you need some inspiration for toppings, here are my favorites:
- The Best Guacamole
- Pico de gallo
- Shredded monterey jack or cheddar cheese
- Sour cream
- Shredded lettuce
- Chopped cilantro
- Lime wedges
What ingredients are needed for sheet pan steak fajitas?
- bell peppers, any color that you like
- red or yellow onion (although I prefer red onion because it’s a little milder in flavor)
- sirloin steak (this is my preference, but you could also use flank steak or skirt steak)
- chili powder
- smoked paprika
- garlic powder
- lime juice
- flour tortillas
- your favorite toppings, such as shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro, etc
Tips for making sheet pan steak fajitas:
- I start out by mixing the spices together for the seasoning. Once the spices are mixed together, stir in the lime juice which will help the seasoning stick to the steak, peppers and onions, plus it gives it everything a little tang.
- Make sure that the sheet pan is well oiled so that the peppers, onions and steak don’t stick and a hot oven is key to getting a good caramelization not the veggies.
- If you want your steak to have a nice sear, it’s important to sear it in a skillet before finishing it in the oven. I’ve tried cooking it entirely in the oven, but it doesn’t get a good sear in the oven.
