Chili Lime Steak Fajitas in Foil Packs

Tender, flavorful, and easy Chili Lime Steak Fajitas prepared in foil packs! This no fuss, fresh, and seriously delicious steak fajitas recipe is sure to be a major hit!

THE BEST STEAK FAJITAS RECIPE

Chili Lime Steak Fajitas are the absolute BEST Steak Fajitas I’ve ever had. They taste exactly like the ones at Chili’s. Marinated in lime juice, garlic, and cumin, these fajitas make a mighty fine weeknight dinner that you can have on the table in 30 minutes. OR 3 hours, if you have time to marinade the steak.

You know what we’ve got here? Two of my favorite things coming together in holy food matrimony: Steak Fajitas + Foil Packs! THAT is a recipe-dream come true for me. They are exceptionally easy to make and are out-of-this-world amazing! Prepared with peppers and onions, it’s an instant classic.

My Steak Fajita Roll Ups and the Steak and Potato Foil Packs are a couple of my readers’ favorite recipes so I was really excited to get those two together, in some form or another, and get to cookin’. And eating.

STEAK FAJITAS MARINADE

We only need a handful of ingredients for the marinade:

  • lime juice,
  • olive oil,
  • garlic,
  • cumin,
  • chili powder,
  • and salt.

You’ll want to whisk those up all together and pour over sliced flank steak; refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight. If you don’t have time to let the steak sit for that long, let stand in the marinade for at least 15 minutes.

HOW TO MAKE STEAK FAJITAS IN FOIL PACKS

  • Cut up four 12 x 12 aluminum foil sheets and set aside.
  • Slice some peppers and onions and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and oregano.

  • Portion out the peppers mixture and arrange in the center of each foil sheet.
  • Portion out the steak slices and arrange over the vegetables.
  • Close the foils and wrap them up tightly around the steak and vegetables.
  • Cook at 425F for 15 minutes, or until done. I suggest to cook for 13 minutes in the oven, then open up the packets and put under the broiler for a couple minutes so to get that bit of browning on top.
  • You can also grill the steak fajitas foil packets over high heat for around 7 minutes per side.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH STEAK FAJITAS

When done, carefully open up the packets and serve over flour tortillas with a side of avocados, lime wedges, and sour cream.

If you’re on a low carb diet, serve the steak fajitas over a salad, or make lettuce wraps. You can also eat this as is, straight from the foil packet. I sure do!

ENJOY!
