I LOVE FAJITAS.
I really feel like that's all that needs said about this.
Sometimes, I cheat. I buy store bought marinade, throw some chicken in it and then cook it up. So easy. But, when I have the time (and the forethought) I love to make these fajitas. They are so delicious and flavorful, and yes, the alcohol cooks off.
Pair them with my homemade flour tortillas and you've got yourself a meal.
P.S. - This marinade is great for chicken and beef. Double yum.
Beer Marinated Fajitas
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
OR 1 flank steak
1 bottle of beer (I use Blue Moon)
3 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1/2 a jalapeño, slices into rings
1.5 Tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Freshly ground pepper
1 small yellow onion
1 small red onion
1 bell pepper (any color)
Tortillas (RECIPE HERE)
Let marinate overnight or at least 4-5 hours for chicken and 7-8 hours for beef.
Slice onions and bell pepper. Cook over medium heat in a pan with 1 Tablespoon EVOO, salt and a little pepper. Once they are nice and brown pull them out. If using sliced chicken, cook in a sauté pan with 1 Tablespoon EVOO. For whole chicken/flank steak, grill, then slice.
Serve on warm flour tortillas.
