Chili Lime Skirt Steak Fajitas

You’ll love this simple and healthy recipe for Chili Lime Skirt Steak Fajitas!


1.5 to 2 lbs. skirt steak
1 onion, sliced in thin strips
2 large bell peppers (red, green, yellow or orange), sliced in strips
2 Tbsp olive oil
8 tortillas
Toppings (this can vary depending on what you like!)
1 package queso fresco (white Mexican cheese), crumbled
1 avocado, sliced in half and sprinkled with lime juice and sea salt
2 limes, sliced
1 tomato
½ cup sour cream
1 cup  chopped cilantro
1 jalapeño
Sea salt and pepper, to taste


Set the EGG or direct cooking at 350°F/180°C. Place a cast iron griddle on the cooking grid and add olive oil. Once the oil gets hot, add the onion and peppers to sauté on the grill. Grill the skirt steak over direct heat for 4 minutes per side, or until they begin to lightly develop char marks. Be careful not to overcook, this is a thin cut of meat that will continue to cook after it’s taken off the EGG. Remove the skirt steak and tent in foil. Once the onions are translucent, the veggies are ready to be taken off the grill.

Grill your favorite toppings for extra smoky goodness!

While the meat is resting, grill the tomato, jalapeño, avocado and limes until they develop nice char marks; this will add a smokier flavor to your fajitas! Heat the tortillas on the cooking grid for 10 seconds each side, just long enough to get them warm. Slice the meat against the grain and serve with the toppings. Enjoy!

Serves 2 to 3.

Marinade Instructions

Combine all marinade ingredients in an immersion blender or food processor; marinate the skirt steak for at least one hour and up to five hours.
