A fajita, in Tex-Mex cuisine, is any stripped grilled meat with stripped peppers and onions that are usually served on flour or corn tortilla. The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish.

Cinco de Mayo-inspired dinner last night was a chicken fajita salad. Since we can’t physically travel why not do it through food to Mexico.

  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 Head Lettuce
  • Extra Olive Oil (to sauté)
  • Chopped Coriander/Cilantro (garnish)
  • 1 Lime (juiced)
