Food Fun Friday- Steak rice bowls

yum yum, I saw this recipe over at Favfamilyrecipes and knew I had the ingredients and figured I'd just go for it (we haven't been eating rice/ this was going to be a treat).  You can substitute chicken for the steak.  This is easy and like I said usually you'll have the ingredients.. well maybe not the avocado!

Steak Rice Bowls
1 Lb. steak, sliced (top round steak works great)
1 can diced green chilies
2 cloves garlic
1/2 c. beef broth
1 pkg. fajita seasoning, divided
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 pkg. Spanish rice
1 can beans, drained and rinsed (pinto or black)
Flour tortilla shells
avocado (optional)
shredded cheese (optional)

Slice steak into thin strips. Place steak strips, chilies, garlic, beef broth, and 1 Tbsp. fajita seasoning in a large plastic Ziploc bag. Press all the air out and let marinade for at least 1 hour. Heat vegetable oil in large skillet. Drain some of the marinade (you don't need to drain it all out, you still want most of the chilies in with the steak) and add steak to skillet. Stir-fry until brown and cooked through. Stir in remaining fajita mix. Add onion and peppers. Prepare Spanish rice according to package directions. Add beans and stir together with rice until hot. Prepare bowls by placing a tortilla inside of the bowl. Add rice/bean mixture to bowl. Add steak and peppers/onions. Top with sliced avocado and/or cheese.

Sounds great, though I think I'd like it better with pork or chicken.
