fajita craze

ever since i made these fajitas a couple weeks ago, i have been craving them non-stop. there is really nothing special about the recipe; sometimes the simplicity of a few ingredients paired with the perfect seasoning is all you need.

i have decided that the marinade is what makes the dish. it's really simple, actually. just a couple tablespoons of canola or olive oil, the juice of a fresh lime, the juice of a fresh orange, and a hodgepodge of spices. i used black pepper, cumin, garlic, minced onions, oregano, and cilantro.

note: you can actually buy a pre-measured mix of these spices in a mccormick seasoning pack. {look for it in the spice aisle.} it's perfect if you don't want to buy the individual spices or don't think you will use them again.

we added sour cream and fresh avocado to ours as the perfect finishing touch. delish.

Mmm... I love making fajitas!!! Especially for a crowd - it's such a fun, casual & interactive dish. Not to mention that anything that goes with chips, salsa & queso is a winner in my book :-)
