Fajita Rice Bowls

Well, I WAS going to make steak fajitas, but since I couldn’t seem to find a date on the package of tortillas in the fridge, I played it safe and came up with something else instead – Fajita Rice Bowls.  Very simple and it was pretty yummy!

Here’s my recipe:

1 to 1 1/2 lbs of black angus beef (the packages I got were thinly sliced)

1 red pepper, sliced

2 green pepper, sliced

1 yellow pepper, sliced

1 sweet yellow onion, sliced

Fajita seasoning


1 package Vigo yellow rice (I LOVE this stuff!) prepared according to package directions.

Prepare rice according to the directions on the package.  I started to boil the water for this after I sliced the veggies and meat, and then had to wait about 10-15 min for the rice to finish, so I’d start this and then cut everything up.

To save on time (but not on cleanup) I used 2 separate pans to cook both the veggies and the steak at the same time.  Poor a little oil into both pans, season to taste, and cook until the meat is done and the veggies are sauteed to your liking.

Spoon rice into a bowl, top with veggies, then the beef.  We added some shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped tomatoes and salsa as fixin’s.  Pretty good!  Here’s a very poor photo….
