We are a family that absolutely loves fajitas and anything even remotely related to Mexican food for that matter. Like this tinfoil packet fajita recipe and skillet taco bake.

These fajitas are beyond yummy and quick to make in a cast iron skillet. We often prepare the ingredients in advance and make this recipe while camping. The key is in planning and preparing the vegetables, steak and seasoning in advance.

Whether you decide to make these fajitas at home or in the great outdoors, you are sure to love them! The steak doesn’t require marinating, although you could certainly do that if you wish, which makes these quick and easy to make.

These easy skillet steak fajitas are a great way to make the perfect weeknight dinner that is a family favorite!

Easy Fajita Recipes FAQs:

  • What other toppings could I use? Black beans, pico de gallo, mexican rice, cheddar cheese are all a great option.
  • Do you have to use steak? No, boneless skinless chicken breasts may be used to make skillet chicken fajitas instead. You could also use prawns or refried beans for a vegetarian option.
  • What is the best cut of meat? We like to use flank steak or sirloin steak cut into thin strips.
  • How do I store leftover meat? Fajita toppings can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature for a few hours and in the fridge for up to one week.

Tips for camping meal preparation:

  • Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible.  Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier.  Trust me on this one!
  • Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought. 
  • Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or camp cookers. These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
  • Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size freezer bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
  • Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy.  These Cheesy Vegetable Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Tinfoil Packet Nacho Dip recipes are some of our favorites.
  • Use my blank printable meal plan or camping meal plans to help organize your next trip.
