Steak Fajita Flatbreads - a great dinner idea loaded with bright, bold flavors that the whole family will love for the Fabulous Flatbread Challenge!
This recipe is seriously going to knock your socks off! My kids suggested I try to sell the recipe to Pizza Hut, which I thought was pretty funny and unlikely, but that would be pretty awesome.
I very happy to be partnering up with Rachel of Rachel Cooks for the Fabulous Flatbread Challenge!
Because I'm such
a procrastinator, I mean really busy… I had to come up with my idea for this Fabulous Flatbread Challenge spur of the moment. My inspiration came from our recent dinner out for our 21st anniversary. We had a fabulous meal at my favorite Mexican restaurant in Texas. My husband had a plate of steak fajitas that would have fed the entire family. I haven't been able to stop thinking about those sizzling fajitas since we were there.
I knew this twist on classic fajitas would be a hit and it certainly was! The whole family really loved it. Because I have a houseful of hungry boys, I made two flatbreads. This would be a fun dinner for family movie night or perfect football food. Of course if you aren't feeding a small army, just half the recipe.
I had elventy-million things going on while making this recipe - including helping Emmet take an online hunter's safety course (yes while I was cooking), so I used a shortcut with store bought pizza dough. I have made homemade flatbread and it is super delicious and quite easy.
