Fajitas Recipe

  Tex Mex Beef

2 lbs meat of your choice (steak, chicken breast, pork chops, etc.), cut into strips

Marinade Ingredients:

1/4 c vegetable oil
1/4 c vinegar
4 cloves garlic
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp fresh oregano (or 2 tsp dried)
2 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp ground cumin

Mexican fajita fixings:

Chopped tomato
Chopped lettuce
Chopped onion
Sliced jalapenos
Sour cream
Grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (or a blend of both)

Flour tortillas

Mix all marinade ingredients together and pour over meat. Marinate meat 2 to 24 hours in refrigerator.

When ready to fix fajitas, drain marinade from meat. Grill meat over medium coals to your desired doneness. If doing chicken or pork, make sure they are thoroughly cooked.

To serve, spread a flour tortilla on a plate, top with grilled meat and the Mexican fixings.
