Chicken and Steak Fajita recipe..so good
Point is - we were having another couple over for dinner a few of weekends ago and I was determined to use my cookbooks to find a recipe for us. Fajitas caught my eye immediately.
I should tell you I could probably eat mexican food every day of my life...especially fajitas. My go to was always the Old El Paso fajita seasoning packet recipe. I'd get a large onion, a couple of green peppers and a package of boneless chicken breast and whip this up with some low fat sour cream and hot sauce.
I've never been a huge 'make it from scratch' cook.. I'm more of a 'what's quick, easy and tastes good?' type. Soo, my side of choice is usually a microwave rice packet...best one so far is Uncle Ben's Santa Fe Whole Grain Rice.
Not this time! I was doing it up right for our dinner guests. I've attached the recipe below as an image so it's easy for you to print. A couple of notes:
- the recipe doesn't call for peppers and onions. I just added them. I made an additional small amount of the marinade and used it to cook the peppers and onions separately.
- it calls for 4 lbs of flank steak and 6 chicken breasts. Fatty. ha! I mean it does say it makes 20 fajitas but for the four of us (and there were leftovers) we used 1.25 lbs of flank steak and 4 boneless breasts.
- directions are to grill it. I just cooked the meat and peppers and onions on two frying pans on the stove.
We all devoured it! Oh..and yes.. I used the microwave rice still. Oh just try it..
