One Fajita, Two Fajita, Three Fajita……

29 Apr

Can you believe it? Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner! To help celebrate we are running an awesome special on Fajita Meat- $7.00/lb. (Now through Cinco de Mayo)

To make life even easier, here is an awesome recipe for BEEF FAJITA’S that will definitely make your taste buds smile!

Ingredients:

1 to 2 lbs. of CBB Fajita Meat 
1 onion, sliced
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, 1/2 Red Bell Pepper, sliced
1 can of beer (Trust me, this is the ticket!)
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. cilantro
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1/4 vegetable oil or olive oil
Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes- 3 dashes each.
Lime juice

Mix all ingredients together and let marinate for at least 10 minutes, longer is better. Cook over medium heat until desired doneness. Serve with tortillas, cheese, tomatoes, avocados, sour cream or whatever your heart desires. Oh and trust me about adding the beer, my husband thought I was crazy when I made these for him the first time….needless to say he realized it was genius and puts the recipe over the top! This is a great recipe that you can add or subtract to depending on what you like. I hope you enjoy!
