Best recipe for fajites, Texas style


Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a Cuisinart or blender.  

For the arbol chili peppers, break off the top and bottom of the dried peppers, then shake out all the seeds.  Blend well.  Pour into a large Ziploc bag & the put in the flank steak.  Mix/mash it so the marinade gets all over the steak.  Put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.  Slice all your veggies.

Put the steak on a pretty hot grill to get a pretty good char, then turn the heat down.  Depending on how you like your steak cooked, let it go for about 10 minutes on both sides.  While the steak is cooking put the veggies on a veggie grill tray and cook as long as you are cooking the steak.  They should be nice and brown.

Let the steak rest for a few minutes before slicing, and slice against the grain of the meat.  Serve with flour tortillas, avocado, sour cream & hot sauce.     

*note, arbol chili peppers are pretty hot, so if you like spice, add more, if you don't, leave them out or just put in a couple
