Fajita meat & veggies

  • 1 lb. chicken and steak
  • 2-3 red and yellow bell peppers stem and membranes removed and chopped into quarters
  • 1 large onion sliced into ½-inch slices


  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 3 teaspoons vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder


  • Place the meat and vegetables in large, separate ziploc bags. In a bowl, combine all marinade ingredients and whisk well. Reserve 3-4 tablespoons of marinade for later, then using the remaining marinade, add a splash to the vegetables for a light coating, then add the remaining marinade to the meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat. When grill is hot, place everything on at the same time. Cook the meat for a few minutes on each side until cooked through (165 degrees F for chicken and 135 degrees F for medium-rare steak and 140 degrees F for medium). Cook vegetables until crisp tender and slightly charred.
  • Remove meat and vegetables from grill and slice into strips on a cutting board. Drizzle with the reserved marinade before serving with any of the following: flour tortillas, guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, black beans, cilantro-lime or Spanish rice, and pico de gallo.


If you don't have chipotle chili powder on hand, regular chili powder will work just fine!  Recipe adapted from the Our Best Bites cookbook.
