One glance at the simplicity of these ingredients and I knew it was going to be a winner. We used flank steak which I marinated for, oh, a good 5 or 6 hours. Gave it a quick sear, a nice rest, and then sliced on the bias. We served with avocado, grilled onions, and Pico de Gallo with refried beans and Mexican Rice on the side. Simple, filling and absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for recipe. UPDATE: I just had to pop in to reiterate how much we love this marinade! We make it at least once every couple of weeks. Thanks again!

This recipe has an excellent marinade for the beef. It turned out full of flavor. The only thing I added were big onion slices and red pepper when I was cooking the meat. Omitted the salsa and cheese because the meat and veggies had so much flavor I didn't think this fajitas needed anything else.

I made this exactly how the recipe stated, I was a little concerned that the meat would be too tough, but it was good tenderness, I just bought pre packaged fajita meat. Pretty good flavor, not sure if I would make this again. I didn't want it for leftovers the next day, but it was alright. I was really trying to copy Chili's restaurant's fajitas, it was pretty close, but I feel like it needed some different flavors.
