Sizzling Tex-Mex Fajitas Recipe
- 1/3 cup beef broth
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 envelope savory herb with garlic soup mix, divided
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon Liquid Smoke, optional
- 2 pounds beef skirt steak, cut into 4 to 6-inch portions
- 2 large onions, sliced
- 1 medium green pepper, sliced
- 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, sliced
- 12 flour tortillas (8 inches)
- Salsa, shredded cheese, guacamole and sour cream, optional
- In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the broth, lime juice, 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, 1 teaspoon soup mix, mustard, pepper, cayenne and Liquid Smoke if desired. Add the steaks; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
- In a large bowl, combine onions, green pepper, yellow pepper and remaining oil and soup mix. Place half of mixture on each of two double thicknesses of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly.
- Drain beef and discard marinade. Grill steaks and vegetable packets, covered, over medium heat for 10-13 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°) and vegetables are tender, turning steaks once.
- Open foil packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Thinly slice steaks; place beef and vegetables on tortillas. Serve with salsa, cheese, guacamole and sour cream if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

Easy way to make fajitas and vegetables. The marinade was very tasty, but my family prefers a little spicier and smokier flavor. Next time will add some fajita seasoning to the marinade. I also prefer my veggies grilled, but cooking them in the foil pouches is definitely a lot easier! Would encourage anyone who likes fajitas to try this recipe!

I can't eat beef so I used chicken instead and OMG did it come out awesome!
I substituted chicken broth for the beef broth and substituted 2 Tbsp. dried minced onions for the garlic soup powder. My husband can't stop raving! FYI, crack a window, made the whole house smell of fajitas!
1/14/2014 I used this marinade for venison this past weekend and we were blown away at how good this marinade is! This is my staple marinade. I make so many substitutions and it still has yet to fail us!
Great flavor. We've added to our list of fajita recipes. We used a flat iron steak and it came out very tender.
The 1st time I used Flank Steak instead, skirt steak was too tough when I tried it the 2nd time.
