Fajita's


What I learned tonight? I should check the picture to see if it's in focus before eating the subject.

I love Fajitas, but I am too lazy to make them the traditional way. This is the lazy man's version.

I had some lean precooked beef cubes in the freezer so that's what I used this time. You could use flank steak or sirloin. I sauteed the peppers and onions on high heat, removing them when the began to char slightly on the edges. Toss about 1 Tbls seasoning per 1 lb of meat and quickly stir-fry at high heat. When they are almost done add the peppers and onions back in and stir. Serve in flour tortillas. I like an Avocado Pico de Gallo with this but didn't have all the ingredients to make it tonight. This is an all purpose fajita rub. I don't remember where I found it.

1 Tbls chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
pinch of cayenne

Store in an air tight container.

Just remember Fajitas don't have to be a pain, you can turn them out in less that 30 minutes.

I'll work on that focus thing.
