I made these last night and they are WONDERFUL!! I went to the Weight Watchers website and I figured these as 6 points per serving (Serves 4 - two fajitas each). This does not include, cheese, sour cream or any sides.

Directions

  1. To prepare marinade, combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.
  2. To prepare fajitas, trim fat from steak and cut against the grain into strips. Combine 1 1/2 cups marinade and steak in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  3. Combine remaining marinade, bell peppers, and onion in a zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  4. Prepare grill.
  5. Remove steak from bag; discard marinade.
  6. Remove vegetables from bag; reserve marinade. Place reserved marinade in a small saucepan; set aside.
  7. Place steak and vegetables on skewers (soak them in water for a bit so they do not burn)cook until desired degree of doneness.
  8. Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until soft.
  9. Bring reserved marinade to a boil.
  10. Take the steak and vegetables off the skewers and onto a serving platter; drizzle with reserved marinade.
  11. Serve the meat and veggies with the flour tortillas and let people make their own fajitas. Pass chopped cilantro.

I will definitely make these again. I added some lime juice to the marinade and cooked the meat and veggies in a skillet, but they were still delicious.

Really good, despite cutting down the marinating time. Too cold to grill, so I cooked this in a skillet. I will make again and next time, I will plan ahead!

We really enjoyed these. I grilled them as posted. The veggies are on the chunky side so I just cut them down a bit. This makes a lot. I cut the recipe in half and it made enough for 4 people because trying to eat two of these fajitas is just too much. I used the leftover marinade to baste the food while it was grilling. Served a droplet of sour cream and some salsa on top and it was good to go. Served Easy Black Bean and Corn Salad as a side dish. Made for Spring PAC 2010. Thanks for posting. :)
