Recipe: Stable & Spice #FitRider Fajitas

Calories: 332

Serving Size: 1 Fajita


  • 6 six-inch white corn or whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 pound skirt or flank steak, trimmed of fat and sliced into thin strips (shortcut: grocery stores sell “fajita cut” steak already trimmed and sliced)
  • No-Sodium Taco Seasoning Packet
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced white onion
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage (shortcut: buy pre-sliced cabbage slaw from the produce section)
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • Mango salsa (optional)


1. Prepare rice according to package directions, subbing the coconut milk 
for water.

2. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a skillet.

3. Season steak slices with salt, pepper and the Taco Seasoning before
adding steak to pan. Cook until steak slices are cooked through (about 8-10 minutes)

4. While the steak is cooking, slice the red cabbage into thin strips.

5. Add garlic in with the steak and let cook 1-2 minutes longer until garlic is fragrant. Keep a close eye at this point to keep the garlic from burning. Remove pan from heat.

6. Combine the yogurt and juice from two limes, stirring well to combine. Season yogurt + lime juice with a pinch of salt.
7. Microwave the tortillas for 30-45 seconds in between two damp paper towels (it makes them soft).

8. Top your tortilla with steak, cabbage, onions, and chopped cilantro with yogurt sauce. Add rice to your taco or serve on the side!

Serving Tip: Grab some mango salsa from the grocery store as a topper to give your street tacos a SoCal flair!
