Switch up your normal sandwich with this delicious recipe!

Healthy sandwiches are a great option for a light dinner or nutritious lunch. Our steak fajita sandwiches are hearty enough to fill you up for hours, but are not loaded with fat or nitrates found in many traditional sandwiches. If you love steak fajitas, but taking fajitas to work for lunch is not practical, this sandwich will satisfy your craving. Delicious sandwiches are convenient and can be very healthy. This one is packed with protein, niacin, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, and vitamins B6 and B12.

We understand how difficult it can be to create dinners that make everyone in the family happy. It is even tougher when you are also packing lunches. Eating the same thing day after day or week after week gets boring and it can even be unhealthy. When you can put a creative spin on family favorites, you expand your menu and prevent boredom. Instead of regular fajitas, you can wrap up the meat and veggies in a pita and serve it in a neat little package.

Kids love these fajitas because they are colorful and delicious. Adults enjoy the taste and love the health benefits. This is as close to a perfect family meal as you will find anywhere.

  1. I just started WEight watchers and I was at a loss as what to cook, I am so glad I found your website with all the delicious looking recipes. This will be my go to for my meals. Thank you.

    1. Hi! These are fajita sandwiches and use pita rather than a tortilla which has more calories. Each steak fajita recipe will have a different number of calories depending on the cut of steak used, the amount of olive oil used (or any other oil) etc.
