Beef Fajita Burrito with Queso Blanco

Allison Hazell


Since I had the Fajita Burrito at Plaza Azteca I have been dreaming of how to recreate it at home! Surprisingly light and full of flavor. The little bit (or lots) of queso blanco over top really tops it off.

How to Make Beef Fajita Burrito with Queso Blanco


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients with skirt steak into a zip lock bag. Marinate no more than 4 hours. You still want to taste the beef!
  2. Prepare queso in crock pot. Put all ingredients together in crock pot for 30 minutes to 1 hour on low. Stir often.
  3. Sautee onions and peppers with some salt and pepper in oil until browned and carmelized.
  4. Grill marinated steak on med- hot grill until desired doneness. (I like med rare-med)Take off grill and let sit for about 10 mins. Slice into thin strips.
  5. Assemble steak, onion, peppers into tortillas in burrito fashion. Drizzle as much warm queso as you like on top and serve.
