Yummy Steak Fajitas

Here's what I made for dinner tonight...

Steak Fajitas

Flank Steak, cut in thin strips
Lime Juice
Cilantro, chopped

put the meat, juice and cilantro in a ziploc bag for an hour to marinate

Fresh poblano chili
bunch of spring onions
1 tablespoon olive oil

Cut the tops and most of the green off the spring onions. Heat a heavy skillet with the oil to a high heat (the oil shouldn't smoke though.) Put the veggies in and cook them until they are browned and yummy. Remove them, and use a clean towel to rub the skin off the pepper. Slice the pepper into strips.

When the veggies are done cooking, use tongs to take the meat out of the marinade and put it in the same hot pan. It's okay if some cilantro gets in the pan. Cook until done and browned. If there is too much marinade, use a paper towel to soak some of it up.

Two fresh, ripe avacados
1/4 cup bottled salsa
salt
lime juice

Mix it all up! Guacamole...mmmmmm!

Two ripe tomatoes
One bunch green onions
Cilantro
lime juice
salt

Chop the veggies and toss with juice and salt. Quick, no-heat salsa verde! (If you like heat, add a fresh jalapeno...mmmm!)

Small corn tortillas

Wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave for about two minutes until the tortillas are soft and warm.


Put two tortillas on a plate. Top each with a few strips of meat, a strip of poblano, top with about a tablespoon of the salsa verde and another tablespoon of the guacamole, and finally one of the cooked onions.

Two fajitas has about 350 calories. So delicious! All this stuff would be really good on a bed of lettuce, too, with some red wine vinegar and a tiny bit of olive oil.

Ok you are my hero...shoot, I am just proud that I steamed white rice and warmed up the pre-made teryaki chicken from Trader Joe's.

Hey, do you have TJ's in Las Vegas? I ask because when we come for almost a week, we like to eat some of our own meals in the room to cut down on calories so we bring food or go to a local store :)
