Making fajitas is by far my favorite dish!
If you have the time let the fajita meat marinate for several hours.
I have also made this dish after work, and only let it marinate for less than 30 minutes & it still tastes great.
I mostly use chicken but you can also use beef.
My standard fajita recipe: *Note this is the spicy version!
2-3 chicken breasts
* I use frozen chicken breasts. If I'm short on time, than I defrost the chicken in the microwave until it is thawed. If I'm making this before work, then I place the frozen chicken in the bag to marinate.
1 small white or red onion thinly sliced depending on your choice.
2 peppers thinly sliced depending on your choice: Red, yellow, orange, or green.
All of them work great together.
2-3 T Soy sauce
1-2 T Worcestershire sauce
1-2 t of Hot sauce (Examples include Valentina or Tabasco)
1 T refrigerated minced garlic
1 t Cumin
1 t Red peppers flakes
1 t chili power
* For extra variation you could add jalapènos and/or poblano peppers. *
I add all the ingredients into a gallon bag to let them marinate. Minimum 30 minutes or longer depending on time.
Grilling the fajitas:
I usually place foil on the grill first, & then place the chicken breasts on the foil. Then I place the veggies in a basket & grill everything until cooked. Flip the chicken once & stir the veggies several times. Usually 10-15 minutes. The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink. Let the chicken rest a few minutes before slicing the chicken into strips.
Cooking the fajitas on the Stove:
You can use one skillet. Spray the skillet with a non-stick cooking spray. Place the chicken in the middle & place the veggies around the chicken. Cook the chicken until no longer pink. Again, let the chicken rest a few minutes before slicing the chicken into strips.
I use whole wheat tortillas & You can top the fajitas with anything!
Here are some ideas: salsa, shredded cheese, queso cheese, diced tomatoes, diced avocado, mexican rice, lime cilantro rice, refined beans, black beans, corn salsa, green tomatillo salsa, green onions, and a dollop of daisy!
**Sour cream will be referred to as: a dollop of daisy.
The lime cilantro rice recipe will be coming soon.... It wasn't good the first time around... I need to work on that recipe.
