Fajita Marinade

by jrwarfield

Fajitas is a dish that never grows old – I always love eating it. Here is one of the fajita marinades that we both really like. I think it would be better with beef, but normally because of the price we stick with chicken. Also, if you have a grill this will probably make it sooo much better tasting,but since we don’t have one we make due.

I put the marinade in a ziploc bag and move it all around so that it is as evenly mixed up as possible.


I add the sliced chicken, but you could use beef flank steak as well.


Mix everything well, and then place in the fridge to marinate.


Add your sliced bell peppers. I often buy a ton of bell peppers on sale and then slice or chop them and freeze them in individual bags. These bell peppers are now thawed and ready to use for this dish.


Add the marinated chicken, and dispose of the bag.


I added one red onion,but you could always add more.


Then mix and cook.


 Once the chicken is done and the onions are cooked, they are ready to serve.
