Cooking in foil packets helps food retain its moisture and protects it from burning, so meats and veggies remain tender and juicy even as they're grilled quickly over high heat. 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!


1 1/2 pounds top sirloin, thinly sliced
3 bell peppers, any combination of red, green, yellow, or orange, thinly sliced
1 small yellow or white onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Step 1

Preheat the grill on high heat.

In a large bowl, combine the steak, pepper, onion, oil, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and lime juice, tossing to combine and coat well.

Portion the steak mixture into the center of four 12x12-inch pieces of foil.

Step 4

Fold the foil tightly around the steaks and veggies, creating packets.
