Who has broken their resolutions for the year already? I’ve been to the gym once….in my defense, I didn’t make any resolutions. So, it’s all good but one trip to the gym is kinda sad. I did have a cold or a cough, it may have been allergies because it’s been so warm and balmy but now….there’s a snowstorm looming. The gym trips could have gotten me in shape to shovel the driveway this weekend. I know I’ll be sweating and panting out there, it should be quite the site. Or….I’ll just wave down one of the neighborhood kids to do it for me…do kids do that anymore? Do they go door to door to earn some money by shoveling driveways? Or are they indoors making this snow treat I shared on Facebook yesterday?
Well, let’s hope they do because, really, who wants to spend their time working up a sweat outside on the driveway when you can be inside whipping up brownies….or fajitas. Am I right? Snow days call for good eats and with these easy Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas, you won’t even have many dishes to clean afterward. Great for a snow day…or a weekday…or lunch.
I love to find ways to make fajitas with less mess…when I make them on my stovetop I find myself cleaning up grease everywhere…on the stovetop…on the microwave..on the floor…on my forehead. It just gets everywhere. So, last year I made these Grilled Chicken Fajitas with virtually NO MESS and then I turned them into these amazing Nachos. This year….these Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas are where it’s at. My family LOVES them and they’re perfect for quick, easy dinners. Just marinade everything for a couple hours (or overnight) in a simple marinade using my preservative free fajita mix and then pour everything onto a sheet pan. Roast for 20-25 minutes and…voila…dinner. Amazing served with these simple tortilla chips and a Corona. Close your eyes, pretend your on a beach in Mexico and know that spring is right around the corner.
Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas Recipe

- 2 tablespoons Fajita Seasoning Mix
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
