FAJITAS



Ingredients


Marinade/sauce ingredients (this is not a doubled amount)

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1/2 cup lime juice (fresh is good; I usually use bottled)

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Meat & veggies

  • 1 chicken breast halves, skinned & boned (I usually use chicken tenders) OR 1 boneless beef steak OR 1/2 of each

  • 3 red, yellow, &/or green bell peppers, seeded & sliced yellow onions (see below)

  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro (more if you're doubling the sauce)

Serving

  • 12 flour tortillas (some people like corn tortillas, but they aren't traditional)

  • Sour cream or crema (optional)

  • Red taco sauce (optional)


Robin: Here is where the cook needs to play (note: this really can't be messed up). I double the marinade/sauce. I never use beef. I use the peppers and also sliced yellow onions, which are not in the original recipe. Also reduce the weight of the meat, depending on who is eating.


Preparation

  1. Mix the marinade/sauce ingredients. Trim away any fat from the meat. Pour 1/4 cup marinade over the meat and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate an hour.

  2. Place 1/2 cup marinade (more if you're adding extra vegetables) in a bowl & stir in 2 tablespoons (or more) minced cilantro. Add the peppers (and onions), stir to coat, and rest at room temperature. Remaining cilantro and marinade will go into the sauce for serving.

  3. Using a little oil, saute the vegetables in a hot pan. Put them into a bowl and set aside. Using a little more oil, saute the meat quickly. (The recipe I work from is for grilling, but I don't grill.)

  4. Slice the meat, if necessary (not if you use tenders). Heat the tortillas (microwave or oven), probably only part at a time. Stir together the reserved cilantro and marinade/sauce, and add the vegetable marinade to this (but not the meat marinade) to make the green serving sauce.

  5. Wrap the veggie and/or meat of choice in a tortilla with added sauce and/or sour cream. Roll it up. Enjoy! And, avocado is really good with these.
