Recipe Information

Serves/Makes:as needed

  • For beef fajitas, skirt steak, trimmed of excess fat and pounded to even thickness
  • For chicken fajitas, use thigh meat for spicy, or breast meat for mild, skinned and boned
  • chili powder
  • garlic powder
  • oregano
  • fresh lime juice
  • olive oil
  • bell peppers
  • scallions and/or yellow onions
  • flour tortillas
  • toppings as desired - salsa, guacamole, cheese, cilantro, shredded lettuce, etc.
  • If the skirt steak hasn't been tenderized, take out all your aggressions on it, rather than using chemical tenderizers. Chicken, of course, doesn't need to be tenderized.
  • Dust the meat with your proportional choice of chili powder, garlic powder, and oregano. It is not necessary to highly season fajitas.
  • Pour 1 part olive oil to 2 parts lime juice into a shallow glass or ceramic dish - add the seasoned meat and turn to moisten well.
  • Allow to marinate 20 minutes to 2 hours in fridge.
  • Place a liberal amount of bell pepper and onion/scallion pieces (1/2 inch x 1-1/2 inch ) among the meat pieces.
  • On a medium-hot BBQ grill (or hibachi) cook meat and veggies until meat is desired doneness and veggies are tender crisp.
  • Quickly cut into big-bite size pieces and pop into warm flour tortillas and top (or don't), as desired.
Lime/BBQ is the mainstay of fajita flavoring. Use seasonings sparingly to determine your taste preferences, then adjust at your whim with these or other spices.
