My father came to visit last week and a few days before he was to arrive I asked if he had any special requests, “pizza and something Mexican would be great,” he replied. Something Mexican hmmm… I always make tostadas and tacos and chicken tortilla soup, I just made pozole and sopa de albondigas last week and I’m not making enchiladas, they take more last minute preparation than my one-year-old can handle.
Ah yes, fajitas—chicken fajitas. Why I always forget about chicken fajitas I can’t tell you because they are something everyone including my lil’ jalapeno will actually eat and as I like to cement everyone’s love for me by feeding them what they want, we’ve got ourselves is a win-win situation.
This is a standard marinade that can be used with any type of fajita meat. If you prefer beef, just substitute 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of strip steak for the chicken breasts.
