Fajitas without the supermarket ‘Fajita kit’

A staple of Tex-Mex cuisine. Typically marinated meat is seared with peppers, sliced thinly and served in a tortilla with guacamole, salad, salsa, cheese, lime crema and whatever else takes your fancy. Traditionally skirt steak is used, but any steak, chicken or even vegetables will work. We use a fajita marinade made from soy sauce, vegetable oil, lime juice, chilli powder, light brown sugar, crushed garlic and black pepper. The sugar in the marinade promotes browning, making it easier to get a flavourful crust with overcooking the steak. Check the meat frequently to ensure it isn’t burning.
