Fajita Marinade


A delicious lime juice based fajita marinade.


1/4 cup lime juice (can subsitute lemon juice)

1/3 cup water (can subsitute wine)

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 cloves crushed garlic

2 teaspoons soy sauce (can subsitute with more worcestershire sauce)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce (can subsitute with bbq sauce)

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.


Place the meat* and veggies** in a bag along with the marinade and shake it around to spread it around evenly.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.  If you intend to cook it in an hour, do not refrigerate.  You can also leave it in the fridge overnight.


When cooking the meat use a very high temperature and fry small batches at a time for 15-45 seconds (potentially longer for chicken).

Serve with refried beans, tortillas, and a salad along with any sauces you enjoy.


*My preferred meat is beef, but chicken works well too.

**I commonly add in onions, bell peppers, and chili peppers.
