This is the way I've been making Fajitas for many years. It's so incredibly easy, since there are so many good, imported Mexican products available. My favorite meat for Fajitas is Skirt Steak. The Mexican butchers slice it horizontally into 1/8 inch steaks, so that's what I recommend you or your butcher do. Badia (bah-dee-yah) has the best Mojo marinade available in the Hispanic section at the grocery store. Poblano Peppers are tasty yet mild.
1 1/2 pounds Skirt Steak, sliced horizontally in 1/8 inch slices
1 cup Badia Mojo Marinade
2 large Poblano Peppers, seeded and sliced thinly
3 medium onions, sliced thinly
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Marinate the Skirt Steak in the Mojo for 3-8 hours in the refrigerator.
25 minutes prior to grilling, combine and cook the Poblano Peppers, sliced onion, olive oil and salt in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir every 5 minutes for 25 minutes. Keep warm until serving time.
Heat the grill to a medium heat. Grill the marinated Skirt Steak slices for 3 minutes per side. Allow the steak to rest for a couple of minutes, then cut into bite-size pieces. Combine the Skirt Steak with the Poblano/onion mixture and serve in tortillas.
Favorite toppings include: cheese, salsa and avocado
