This steak fajita burrito bowl recipe is so easy and delicious that you will want to dance around a sombrero every time you eat it.
So, burrito bowls are a favorite of mine. When I go to Chipotle Mexican Grill, I always get the burrito bowl. But I don’t always get steak on my burrito bowl, though because sometimes I get chicken or carnitas.
When I make this steak burrito bowl at home, I don’t cut my steak in small pieces the way they do at Chipotle. One of the reasons is that the steak holds its moisture better in large pieces. Also, I’m perfectly happy to cut it as I’m eating it.
Another Mexican restaurant memory
For many reasons, I’m glad they didn’t have mobile phones back when I worked for the Mexican restaurant because I would have been in BIG trouble. I worked a lot of lunch shifts and sometimes we were not very busy. So, we used to amuse ourselves. In fact, if you want to read about my foray with vermouth during one such ‘amusement,’ look here.
And one of the most surprising things the years have brought me is the ability to listen to and enjoy Mexican music again. Why? Because that was the only music they played at the restaurant. The whole six years I worked there.
But did they play it at a nice, unobtrusive level?
No, they did not.
Moreover, did it make the workers crazy?
Yes, it did.
Sometimes, I felt like I would lose it while I was standing at a table, waiting impatiently for the patrons to decide whether they were going to get an original margarita or strawberry. The debate would last longer than I thought necessary and while I waited, I’d tune the dialogue out. But the downside to this strategy was I’d tune in to the music. Yet again.

How to make the steak fajita burrito bowl
Next, I take out the steak tips and cut them into smaller pieces, but not too small because I want the steak to be tender and still pink.
I take the veggies out of the wok and add the steak. Furthermore, I sauté the steak for 7 – 8 minutes and get all the other ingredients ready.
Finally, I get out my cute little bowl and start layering the ingredients.
First up are some chopped spinach, beans and corn.
Next up are the cooked peas, cooked onions and peppers and steak.
But what’s missing?
It’s the guacamole and sour cream. So, I dollop some on.
This steak fajita burrito bowl was so fabulous that I may have danced around another sombrero.
So, I hope you enjoyed this recipe!
