This is a combinations of many recipes I have used to make fajitas. I like this one best. You may also use pork tenderloin, pounded to 1/2" thickness instead of the skirt steak. Lamb or chicken could also be used.

This is really good! The juices and the beers didn't really overpower- just made the meat taste meatier if that's possible! A new fav for fajitas right here! Thanks for sharing.
Excellent marinade for fajitas! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and white wine in the marinade. I put everything in a large freezer bag and froze for freezer tag. Thawed in the fridge and grilled the chicken. Just delicious! Served in freshly cooked flour tortillas with grilled onions and peppers. Yummy!
Great flavor! I halved the recipe and used the grilled fajita meat for tortas! I filled bolillo rolls with a thin layer of refried beans, fajita meat, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes and a little mayo! It was delicious and I will use this recipe again! Thanks Miss Annie!
