Re-season this bean layer with 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp ground pepper, and 1 Tbsp chili powder. Simmer on Med-Low heat for 15 minutes to tenderize and steam the beans in the beer, and reduce liquid.

Add fire roasted diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and chopped cilantro. Re-Season this layer with 1 tsp salt and 1 Tbsp chili powder. Simmer on Med-Low for 5 minutes to reduce liquid. Stir and make sure the bottom isn’t sticking.

Taste, re-season if necessary to taste.

Add frozen John Soules Foods Beef Fajitas

Simmer on Med-Low for 5 minutes until Steak is warmed and soft. Break beef into smaller pieces with stirring utensil. Do NOT overcook, beef is already fully cooked.
