These Sheet Pan Fajitas are healthy, light and flavorful and are topped with a slightly spicy lime and sour cream sauce that brings it all together.

Making dinner for me is a huge stress reliever, something I seem to need more and more of. So the rhythmic chopping of all the vegetables in this recipe were the perfect stress reliever on a Friday after a busy week.

Cooking is my therapy!

In this recipe I used flank steak, and although it’s not my favorite cut of meat, it worked. The trick in keeping flank steak tender, is in how you cut it. TheKitchn has a great article on how to slice meat against the grain. Also, tweaking the seasonings to your preference makes a big difference in how spicy or flavorful this dish is. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
