Welcome to Freezer Food Friday!
Today is the day to share your recipes that can be prepared ahead and frozen for later use. Please share your recipe on your blog and link it below using Mr. Linky. Leave me comment and I will be around to see your recipes. Thanks for sharing!
1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 red bell peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
1 jalapeño, seeded (if desired) and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon hot sauce
4 1-quart resealable plastic freezer bags
4 bags frozen fajita mixture
4 teaspoons olive oil
8 8-inch flour tortillas, warmed
Store-bought refrigerated fresh salsa (optional)
Sour cream (optional)
In a large bowl, combine the steak, onion, bell peppers, jalapeýo, chili powder, hot sauce, and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
Divide evenly among 4 bags. Freeze until ready to cook, up to 3 months.
In a large skillet, over medium heat, heat the oil (use 1 teaspoon per serving).
Empty the frozen contents of the bags into the skillet (use 1 bag per serving). Cook, covered, stirring occasionally to break up ingredients, for 10 minutes.
Raise heat to medium-high and cook, uncovered, until the vegetables are tender and the steak is cooked through, 2 to 6 minutes.
Serve with the tortillas and the salsa and sour cream, if desired.
Yield: Makes 4 servings
