FOIL PACK STEAK FAJITAS — Flank steak, peppers and onions are grilled in foil, then rolled in flour tortillas with sour cream and guacamole in this yummy Tex-Mex meal.
When it comes to making delicious, juicy beef fajitas, these Foil Pack Steak Fajitas are the way to go!
I sort of love foil dinners of all kinds, and these foil pack fajitas are a favorite with me and my family. Grilling in foil packs is just so easy. And honestly, I think you could grill almost anything this way.
Fajitas are a great way to use less expensive cuts of meat. The secret is a good long marinade to tenderize the beef and add lots of flavor.
You can certainly mix up your own spice blend, but in the interest of keeping things quick and easy, I usually use a pre-packaged fajita seasoning blend.
I really love that this is a complete meal in one convenient package. There’s just something so satisfying about tender steak and grilled peppers all rolled up in a soft flour tortilla with sour cream and guacamole.
That’s the great thing about fajitas–they’re easy to change up to suit your tastes. Another delicious addition to these foil packs is sliced mushrooms.
I usually plan on one foil pack per person–which will make about two fajitas, if you use the small fajita size tortillas. But leftovers are wonderful, if you’re lucky enough to have any!
If you’re looking for a simple, easy to make summer dinner that won’t heat up your kitchen, these Foil Pack Steak Fajitas are a must try!

Tips for Choosing and Storing Bell Peppers
Color: Color does matter–somewhat. Red peppers are just mature green peppers. However, orange and yellow peppers are different, sweeter varieties.
Appearance: Regardless of color, look for shiny, unblemished, wrinkle-free skins, as well as peppers that are firm. Avoid peppers that look shriveled or have soft spots.
Storing: Keep unwashed peppers in a plastic bag in the vegetable drawer. Keep them dry–too moisture will eventually cause them to rot.
Most peppers will keep in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. Green peppers tend to stay fresh longer than other varieties.
