In Steak Fajitas, tender strips of sirloin pick up plenty of spicy flavor from a marinade seasoned with cayenne pepper and cumin. "These colorful sandwiches are speedy and satisfying," says Shirley Hilger of Lincoln, Nebraska.

"This was delicious! It was a recipe that you can make at the last minute without a lot of marinade time. I grilled the onion and peppers in a grill basket on the gas grill. GREAT! I'm adding this to my personal recipe book!"

"Just made, very good and my family says I am picky. Only had tenderloins so used those and marinated over night. I used red, yellow & orange peppers vs green. Topped with cheddar cheese and sour cream. Definitely will be making again!"

"These were AHHHmazing! The only thing I did different was double the cayenne pepper. These don't need the cheese or sour cream, awesome flavor. Thanks for sharing!"

"I liked it that this was so quick and easy to fix. It also tasted really good. I didn't have any green pepper so I changed that. I thought I would try putting some carrot circles in it, and that tasted really good. Would like to have the nutritional analysis printed."

"We all really enjoyed these fajitas. My three year old that doesn't like onions and peppers like them! I think next time I make them I will let the meat marinade longer for a little stronger flavor."

"try with pico de gallo: cilantro, tomato, onion, and some jalapeno or serrano pepper all diced up and mixed together in a bowl with a squeeze of lime juice.."

"Best steak fajitas ever...I don't imagine any changes are actually needed, however this is what I did differently: apple cider vinegar, couple sprinkles of Texas style chili powder, little soy sauce. I also combined all meat, veggies, and marinade in a plastic bag for a couple of hours in the frig. Then just cooked everything right in a skillet on the stove. I also made the homemade tortilla recipe from TOH....so good!"
