Fajita Marinade Recipe

I got this amazing recipe from my sweet friend Ruth. I've always loved the idea of fajitas, but never knew how to make them taste good. This recipe solved my problem instantly! I made this recipe the other night with beef and our whole family loved it! 

Fajita Marinade Recipe 

For 6-8 chicken breasts or beef

1/4 cup sesame oil (I didn't have any so I used olive oil and it tasted great)
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup lime or lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped onion (or powder-just 1 or 2 tsp)
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1 tsp oregano (optional)
1/2 tsp salt or more
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
3 cloves garlic, minced

Bell peppers (Green, Red, etc)


Mix and marinade the meat for a few hours or overnight. Cook.

Sauté onions and peppers and add to sliced, cooked meat.

Spoon onto tortillas and serve with fresh cilantro, avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, olives or tomatoes.
