Bring another serving of vegetables and important nutrients to your plate with this veggie-filled twist on classic fajitas. We’ve upped the vegetable ante by sautéing savory mushrooms and mixing them with steak for an umami-rich, flavorful punch. And we’ve sped up the preparation time for this Tex-Mex favorite, forgoing marinating the steak by using a tender cut.
Recipe Cost for 4 People: $15.48 ($3.87/serving)*
Preparation Time: 45 minutes

  • 12 oz sirloin or other boneless steak, about ¾-inch thick
  • 3 cups sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp no-salt fiesta lime seasoning (like Mrs. Dash), divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 medium yellow or white onion, sliced into strips
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas, 6-inch
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 4 tbsp non-fat sour cream
Slice beef across the grain into ¼-inch strips. Place in a medium bowl with ½ tbsp fiesta lime seasoning; toss to coat. Place mushrooms, peppers, and
onion and remaining fiesta lime seasoning in a large bowl; toss to coat. Heat oil in large, non-stick skillet. Add beef strips; cook about 3-4 minutes. Remove from skillet. Place coated vegetables in skillet and sauté until vegetables are slightly tender, about 5-8 minutes. Add beef back to skillet and sauté mixture 1-2 more minutes. Assemble fajitas by dividing beef-vegetable mixture evenly on each tortilla, top with remaining ingredients and roll up.
