Fabulous Fajita Marinade

Has it been forever since I've shared a recipe with you?  It seems like it has been.  This fabulous fajita recipe has been a staple of ours this summer - it is quick, delicious and grilled (read: the Hubby does the cooking after I do the prepping).  I've tried a TON of different fajita recipes, and this one (modified from All Recipes) takes the cake.  



Fabulous Fajita Marinade
Ingredients
1/4 cup lime juice
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, crushed
3/4 tsp. seasoned salt (I'm a Lawry's girl!)
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper 
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano

Directions
Combine all ingredients and marinate meat of choice (I use two whole chicken breasts) for at least one hour.  Grill over medium-low heat so it stays nice and juicy.

For veggies, slice a bell pepper and an onion.  Spray lightly with olive oil spray and sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Place in a grill basket and cook to desired done-ness (the veggies will take less time than the chicken).  

To serve, slice meat thinly and place meat and veggies into a warmed tortilla with refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes, rice, and whatever else your pretty little heart desires.  


Also - we do like to grill our tortillas to warm them.  But don't forget about them.  Because then, you will end up with one or two of these:

Mmmm....notice the reverse grill marks, where the grill was protecting the tortillas from turning into char.  Delicious! 

Whoops!  Yours should look a little bit more like this:


Delicious!  I'll be sharing this yummy goodness around a few fun places
