12 servings (serving size: 1 tortilla, 2 ounces meat, 1/2 cup onion mixture, 2 tablespoons tomato, and 2 teaspoons cilantro)

These mixed chicken-and-steak fajitas feature traditional Mexican flavors such as cumin, lime juice, chili powder, and fresh cilantro.  Serve with refried beans and rice for a complete meal. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Trim fat from steak, and score a diamond pattern on both sides of steak.

Step 2

Combine juice and next 7 ingredients (juice through garlic) in a small bowl. Divide marinade equally between 2 large zip-top plastic bags, adding steak to 1 bag and chicken to the other. Seal bags, and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or overnight, turning bags occasionally. Remove steak and chicken from bags, discarding marinade.

Step 3

Prepare grill or broiler.

Step 4

Place steak on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and cook 10 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices. Place chicken on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Cut chicken into thin slices.

Step 5

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell peppers; sauté 10 minutes or until onion mixture begins to brown.

Step 6

Warm tortillas according to package directions.

Step 7

Spoon steak or chicken, onion mixture, tomato, and cilantro down center of each tortilla; roll up.

I have been making these since they 1st appeared & they are my husband's favorite. The longer the meat marinates the better, but I've had good results even with only a couple hours in the marinade. Serve with Fiesta Rice (CL 2007), tomato salad & corn muffins.

Great 5 star recipe

I have tried many fajita recipes and this is my favorite by far. So easy and just ingredients you have in the pantry/fridge. Good flavor and not overpowering. I cut the recipe by half and omitted the chicken.
