The BEST Fajitas


If someone asked me what are the top 5 meals that I make most for my family this recipe would be one of them! Whenever I am at the store and don't have my shopping list with me I always seem to go back to this recipe. Its simple, I know the recipe by heart, and its always a winner! I will admit that I usually make chicken fajitas more then steak fajitas. But this particular day I had steak left over from the night before and I was taking pictures of some salsas I was also making for dinner so I thought why not take some pictures of this to! Plus this recipe is too good not to share!

Fajitas (Steak or Chicken)
1 (16 oz) bottle Paul Newman’s Italian dressing

1 (8 oz) bottle of Pace medium thick and chunky salsa
juice of 1 lemon
1 medium yellow onion
1 green bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1/2 of a (6oz)container of mushrooms, sliced
fajita meat, either chicken or steak (3 chicken breasts or 2 thin cut steaks)
flour tortillas
sour cream
cheese

Grill chicken or steak and then cut into thin strips. (Or use left over chicken or steaks) Slice red, green, and yellow bell peppers and onion. Put veggies and meat into a ziploc then add the italian dressing, salsa, and lemon juice. Let marinate for atleast 1 hour (the longer the better). When ready to eat grab large skillet and dump everything from the ziploc bag in. Cook until all the meat and veggies are cooked through. Serve on flour tortillas and top with cheese and sour cream!
