Macayo's Fajita

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1/4 Tbsp white pepper
  • 1/4 lime, squeezed
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil


In a large bowl, whisk together all Marinade ingredients. Put meat in marinade and set aside for at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 200° F. Set tortillas in for 1 to 3 minutes, to warm. Remove and put into a covered basket.

1 pound beef skirt (flank steak) or chicken breast, sliced into 1/4 x 3-inch long strips


  • 1 large whole onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil or chili oil


Heat a large skillet and add olive oil. Add marinated meat and onion and sauté until onion becomes translucent. Place cooked meat in a large bowl or platter and serve with tortillas, toppings and garnishes.

For each fajita, fill a tortilla with meat and desired amounts of garnishes and toppings and roll up like a burrito. Serve with refried beans, black beans or Spanish rice.
