Steak Fajitas are a quick and easy dinner idea that might just be on your menu after reading this easy steak fajita recipe! With all of the easy to follow steps and the promise of a flavorful dinner, how could it not be?

Easy Steak Fajitas

What makes this instant pot steak fajita recipe so amazing is that you can have dinner ready in no time flat. While fajitas don’t normally take long to prepare in the first place, there’s just something fun about making them in an instant pot!

Steak Fajitas

Ordering a plate of steak fajitas at your favorite restaurant is nice, but making them in the comfort of our own home can be just as much fun (if not more so). Not only that, but you can eat as many as you want and pile the cheese sky high.

These steak fajitas are a pretty great meal on their own, but pairing them with my black bean and corn salsa and a side of tortilla chips is a great way to add more color and options to your plate!
