A note about serious food allergies

Ever wonder how the fajitas at your Mexican joint get their vibrant color and flavor? Sazón is the reason! It's a mix of ground achiote and culantro, a close cousin of cilantro but with amped up flavor. Achiote are seeds from a small shrub native to the Americas that, when ground, give Latin and Caribbean dishes their characteristic red-orange color and coriander aroma.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, and slice red bell pepper into wide 1 ½" strips. Cut one strip into a ¼” dice. Peel onion and slice into ⅓” thick rounds. Mince one onion round. Slice jalapeño into thin rounds.

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with 1 ¾ cup water, remaining Sazón seasoning, and rice to a boil. Reduce to simmer, cover, and cook until tender and water has been absorbed, 17-20 minutes. Season to taste with salt, set aside, and keep warm. Heat outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

  • Step 3 - Make the Beans

    Make the Beans

    Heat a small pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, diced pepper, minced onion, and ¼ tsp. salt to pot and cook until vegetables have softened, about 2-4 minutes. Add 1 cup black beans and ½ cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until liquid has evaporated and bean mixture thickens, about 12-15 minutes. Mash with a potato masher or fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Step 4 - Grill the Vegetables and Steaks

    Grill the Vegetables and Steaks

    Grill steaks 4-6 minutes on each side, or until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees. Remove to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Spray grill with cooking spray and grill peppers and onions on each side for 2-3 minutes, or until slightly charred. Remove to a cutting board. Once rested, slice steak and peppers into thin strips.

  • Step 5 - Warm the Tortillas
