It's Fajita Night!

Our families favorite default meals tend to be Mexican foods...rather Americanized Mexican foods.  After about a year of marriage Bryce asked me if I could make anything that did not go in a tortilla?  To which I answered yes...you can put most of these dishes on tortilla chips too :)

It's tomato, pepper and onion season!  To me it's fajita and pico de gallo season!

Jens Fajitas

1 # Fajita beef
Fajita seasoning or cumin and chilli powder to taste
1 green peper
1 red or orange pepper
1 red onion
lots of firm tomatoes.  I used grape tomatoes in this dish
1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
tortillas (we use corn)

1. Brown the fajita beef in a heavy skillet.  I add some fajita seasoning or cumin & chilli powder right to the meat as it browns.
2. Chop up all the veggies to desired size and add to meat when it is browned..
3. When veggies are just about cooked through add chopped cilantro.
4. Serve on warm tortillas.
5. Eat too many and rub your belly when done!
