  2. Remove meat from marinade. Grill or broil to desired doneness. Lift vegetables from marinade; place in heated skillet or grill pan. Saute vegetables over medium-high heat until tender. Discard any leftover marinade.
  3. Cut meat into thin slices. Serve in warmed tortillas with vegetables; garnish with salsa, sour cream or shredded cheese, if desired. Fold over edges of tortilla.

Wow, these were the best fajitas I've ever made! I definitely recommend using flank steak as it turns out SO tender. I marinated mine for about 30 mins, then seared it on the BBQ over high heat. I only cooked it a few mins per side, so that the meat was still pinkish-red inside. I also grilled the veggies on the BBQ. YUM! This had such an authentic taste to it. I probably wouldn't have liked it as much cooked on the stove though. I think BBQing everything makes all the difference. I'm going to make these again in a few days. My fiance came home from a business trip and had the leftovers today and he LOVED it. The lime adds a nice touch too.

Was OK. I used chicken instead of steak. I'll use a different recipe for fajitas next time.

This is an excellent recipe. It has a real authentic Mexican flavor. Try using both red & green peppers together.The results are outstanding.

I thought this was 'alright'. ~Marinated 4 hours ~ I used Flank Steak, and will NOT use that again! If I make this recipe, I'll try it on chicken, or sirloin, or some other type of steak. I used extra lime and added yellow/red peppers also. I think my main problem was the steak...
