Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and toss a few times as the chicken thaws and starts to grill.

While the chicken is doing it’s stuff seed the poblano and the jalapeño  peppers and cut them into strips . If you don’t want it to be too spicy just go with green bell peppers. Cut the onion into strips.

We had some Malbec with ours but some Mexican Beer or some Tequila (or both!) would help set the mode pretty good.

Quick Easy Beef Fajitas – No Marinade

Beef Ftjitas-Poppopcooks.com

In keeping with your recipes needing to be quick and easy let’s eliminate the marinading the beef step and still have great tasting Quick Easy Beef Fajitas.

Put a large skillet on at a setting between medium high and high. Add enough olive oil to fully coat the bottom the skillet. Use thin sliced round beef steak or whole skirt steak or flank steak and cut it into about 1/2″ strips. The peppers in the pic are poblano peppers cut into strips. You might prefer red, green or orange bell peppers. We like the poblanos because they add a little bit of spiciness. Cut a medium sized onion into strips and chop up the garlic. Cut the lemon – or lime – in half.

Put everything but the lemon in the skillet and toss it all together. Squeeze the lemon – or lime – juice all around on top of the mixture and toss in the rinds. Sprinkle the spices all over it and toss it all some more. Toss regularly as it cooks. When everything is starting to get a little crispy on the edges, it’s ready. About 10 – 15 minutes. About halfway through the grilling process drain off any liquid that has accumulated in the pan and add a little more olive oil.

Heat up the tortillas in between pepper towels in the microwave and enjoy your Quick Easy Beef Fajitas. Spoon the meat and veggies on the tortillas and top it off with some salsa or sour cream or pico de gallo or “all of the above”.
