Oven-Baked Steak Fajitas

Nicole Bredeweg Recipe

By Nicole Bredeweg nikkitten

My adopted hometown has a lot of ethnic diversity -- including a large Latino segment. What this means is a really great variety of authentic Mexican restaurants. And I fell in love with fajitas. In my quest to find a make-at-home fajita recipe, I came across this one in a Reader's Digest (Hunts) recipe. Easy, makes a nice presentation, can work easily as a take-away recipe, it's nearly perfect. My only problem is that you don't get the crusty bits from searing them on a cast iron skillet. . .
