Steak Fajitas (Citrus Garlic Chile Marinated Skirt Steak)

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by BecR2400

This recipe pairs skirt steak (a flavorful, yet less tender cut of beef) with citrus, garlic and chile- all piled into a soft flour tortilla. The garnishes are up to you: We like pico de gallo and sour cream, but also try grilled onions and bell peppers. An easy and low-calorie Tex-Mex favorite from Ladies Home Journal Test Kitchen.

Good, interesting recipe! After all, the orange flavor in fajitas was not our cup of tea, but well worth trying!
