The Steak Fajita Foil Dinner takes advantage of this trick to make a complete fajita dinner in 30 minutes or less! The steak is savory, the vegetables are bright, and everything is coated in a beautiful combination of Mexican-style spices—exactly what you dream of piled on top of tortillas! Topped with your favorite flavors, the Steak Fajita Foil Dinner is an easy and delicious new weeknight meal that you'll be excited to add to your rotation!
