Hungry Recipe - Stacked Beef Fajitas

I thought I might share a staple recipe with you guys today... Stacked Fajitas.

These are seriously delicious but also really healthy and simple to prepare.

Fajitas are perfect for when you have visitors for dinner too! You can setup a fun little serving area and everyone can pick and choose ingredients to create their own stacked fajitas.

Makes 12 fajitas - enough for six peeps  
(adapted from

For your meat...
  • 500g of beef steaks (chicken breasts/thighs would work too)
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp of cumin
  • 1 small onion or 2 green onions
  • salt and pepper to season
  • oil for the BBQ
 For your onions and capsicums...
  • 3 onions, halved and then sliced
  • 3 capsicums, halved and then sliced (I prefer red capsicum)
  • salt and pepper to season
  • oil for the BBQ
Fajita stacking sides...
  • tomato, sliced or diced
  • avocado, sliced
  • cheddar cheese, grated
  • sour cream
  • shredded lettuce or baby spinach
  • most importantly - 12 tortillas (I use multigrain tortillas)

Get Preppin'
  1. Marinated your meat for at least a few hours with the garlic, cumin and onion. (it is best if you can do it overnight)
  2. Combine your onion and capsicums in a bowl ready to BBQ
  3. Prepare your fajita sides to serve
Fire up the BBQ!
  1. Make sure the BBQ is about medium to high heat. Drizzle oil over the BBQ.
  2. Cook your capsicum and onion mix for 15-20 minutes until the onions begin to brown and caramelise, remove and keep warm.
  3. Pop your steaks onto the BBQ and cook until medium rare or to your personal taste.
  4. Once your steaks are cooked, remove from heat and allow to rest for about 5 minutes. Slice into small strips for serving.
  5. To serve, stack your tortillas with the meat, capsicum-onion mix and all your delicious sides!
