Beef Fajitas with Homemade Tortilla Chips

Beef-Fajitas-Crockpot-Recipe

One of my favorite things on the redesign of the blog is the recipe index.  It has allowed me to see recipes I made years ago and forgot about.  This recipe for Crockpot Beef Fajitas was one such recipe.  Since it’s been 6 years since I originally wrote this post, my family has grown (both in number in size.)  That meant I had to increase the amount of ingredients, but the recipe turned out just as tasty.

The other difference was what I served it on.  Last time it was potatoes because I didn’t have tortilla wraps.  This time I had tortilla wraps, but not enough to feed the family.  So I decided to serve it up as Beef Fajita Salad and using the tortilla wraps I did have made some homemade tortilla chips.  The kids loved them, and they were super simple

For my Homemade tortillas chips, I just cut them into triangles and sprayed with a bit of cooking spray.  I then cooked them in my toaster oven at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes.  We got a yummy treat without heating up the kitchen.

Now for the original recipe. (Scroll to bottom, for printable version)

London Broil was recently on sale for buy one get one free. It’s not a cut of steak I buy often, but I can’t resist getting it for 50% off. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with this cut of meat, but I found a recipe that not only uses the London Broil, but also a stockpile item of salsa. It is delicious and also very frugal.

Here’s what you’ll need

  • 1 1/2 Pounds of London Broil Steak
  • 1 1/2 cups of salsa
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 green bell pepper (you could use half green and half red if you have it)

Cut the meat into about 6 pieces and place in the crockpot. Then dice the onion and peppers and add it. Finally add the salsa.
Stir it all together.

Cook it on low for 8 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours

Remove the meat and shred the meat. Then put it back in the crock pot and stir in the salsa.
Normally fajitas are served on tortillas and you add cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and whatever else you may like. I didn’t have any tortillas in the house so I served them with baked potatoes. I just served it with shredded cheese and the extra salsa.

This was a delicious easy meal. In addition it was very frugal. This meal cost $6.20 and fed 6 people. Here’s the breakdown:

  • London Broil – $4.20
  • Salsa – $1.00 (when on sale)
  • Bell pepper, onion and potatoes – $1.00 estimated cost
