    zephanie's Note:

    My husband's recipe for fajitas, based on a recipe found in a Mexican cookbook by Jane Milton and his own experimentation. The inclusion of cinnamon is what to me gives these fajitas such a great flavor! Serve with your favorite accompaniments along with rice and beans and a strong margarita!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cut meat in strips (against the grain) and place in medium sized freezer bag.
    2. 2
      Drizzle enough oil over the meat to coat and shake bag.
    3. 3
      Add all all seasonings to bag, shake to coat meat.
    4. 4
      Add enough lime juice to coat meat, plus dash of tequila.
    5. 5
      Marinade (ideal time for steak or chicken-- 1 1/2 -2 hours, shrimp-- no more than 30 minutes).
    6. 6
      Heat cast iron skillet on medium-high until smoking, add approximately 1/4 of the meat plus onion and peppers and sear for approximately 3-5 minutes. If cooking just chicken or shrimp, you may need to add a small amount of oil (1 tsp). Do not overcrowd the skillet or you will not achieve a good sear.
    7. 7
      Continue cooking the rest of the fajitas in small batches. Serve with tortillas and accompaniments.

      Made for My 3 Chefs June 2012 tag game and this was a great choice. I used steak for the meat and added a few mushrooms that I had left but otherwise followed the instructions. I did marinate the meat for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. DH could only go yummmm. Going into my Favorites of 2012. Thank you for posting. Next time I will try the recipe with chicken or shrimp.
