  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into ¼" fries. Pat fries dry. Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, fajita seasoning, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper. Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven, 15 minutes. Carefully flip fries. Bake again until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Season baked fries with a pinch of salt. Careful: Baking sheet will be hot! While fries bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Toast Buns

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ¼" strips. Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add buns to hot pan cut-sides down and toast until lightly browned, 30-60 seconds. Remove buns from pan. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Start the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, bell pepper, and shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Filling

    Add steak strips and cook undisturbed until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in 1 Tbsp. lime juice.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Place a small pot over medium heat and add ¼ cup water, cream cheese, a pinch of salt, and half the chipotle seasoning. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner. Stir in mozzarella cheese until creamy. Taste, and add remaining chipotle seasoning if desired. Use immediately; sauce will thicken as it cools. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing filling in buns and topping with cheese sauce. Bon appétit!
