The Best Fajitas You Will Ever Eat

chicken and beef BBQ fajitas

I know what you’re thinking, you’ve had some pretty good fajitas before, but trust me,  these are literally,  the BEST fajitas you will ever eat, in fact the may just be the best food you’ll ever eat.

There are three parts to this recipe, the Pico De Gallo, the Crema, and the Marinade.  Luckily, it can all be made ahead of time, making this the perfect meal for your next big BBQ.

I’ve made this recipe using both beef and chicken, but my favorite version involves both.  I use about a pound and a half of flank steak and three chicken breasts, as well as 3 or 4 large chopped peppers and a red onion.

Pico De Gallo

2 medium tomatoes 
1/2 a red onion 
2 green peppers 
4 sprigs of cilantro
2 cloves of garlic
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
a bit of lime zest

Chop everything up, put it in a bowl, cover it up and let it sit for at least an hour

Crema ( bowl on the left)
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix everything up and refrigerate for at least an hour

Meat and Veggie Marinade
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp. cilantro chopped
juice and zest from 1 lime

Mix it all up and pour it over the meat and peppers.  Let it marinate in the fridge for about an hour.
Once its all ready to cook, remove the meat from the marinade and grill it to your taste ( I love my steak rare, but we usually cook it to medium for the kids).  BBQ the peppers in the marinade in a baking tray.  

To serve just put a little bit of everything on a whole wheat or corn wrap, along with some fresh grated cheese.
