How to Make Fajitas

Updated on November 16, 2011

Fajita Recipe

If you're anything like myself, you love the fajitas at your local Mexican restaurant and wish you could make them. The hardest thing is to duplicate the flavor. Well after several failed attempts I have mastered it. They are actually a really easy dish to make.

What you need: (serving size 2)

* 2 pounds flat iron steak (or 2 lbs chicken breast)

* 1 large onion

* 2 green bell peppers

* 1 tomato

* 1 lemon

* salt and pepper

* large frying pan

* 2 tbsp. oil

Cut your steak into 1/4 inch slices and put salt, pepper, and squeeze the juice from 1/2 the lemon onto the meat. Let set for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the onion into thin slices, the bell peppers into slices, and the tomato into 8 pieces, and cut the remaining half of the lemon into quarters. Add the tomato and lemons to your meat.

Get a large frying pan and put 1 tbsp. of the oil in it and put on medium high heat. Wait until the oil is hot and add your onions and peppers, cook for 4-5 minutes stirring often. You want the onions and peppers to get brownish. Now add your meat. Cook for about 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve hot... You can serve with chips, salsa, rice and tortillas

      It's to the point to where I hardly eat any meat at all without soaking some lemon or lime juice into it - I just love that stuff!
