Sheet Pan Beef Fajitas
This is how
dinner should be: Fast, easy, and full of flavor! You can have this tasty meal
on the table in 30 minutes if needed, or you can marinate the steak ahead of
time with some olive oil and the dried spices listed below for extra flavor.
For best results, use a three-quarter sized sheet pan for this recipe versus the more common 13” x 18” half sheet pan. This will allow extra room to spread the vegetables out into a single layer without overcrowding while roasting.

peppers, red onion, olive oil, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and red pepper
flakes. Generously season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix until
