Bison (or beef) Fajitas

My order of bison meat included some strips, so I decided to make fajitas. You could make this with any pound of steak, beef or bison! One pot to cook and it came together pretty quickly!

What you need:
-1 lb. meat, cut into strips
-1-2 bell peppers, cut into thin strips

-1 onion, cut into slices
-olive oil
-toppings--I used a chopped tomato, chopped cilantro, grated Mexican cheese blend and some Greek yogurt in place of sour cream.

Marinade ingredients:
-1/4 C tequila
-1 T lime juice
-2-4 cloves chopped garlic
-2 T chopped cilantro
-sprinkle of red pepper flakes
-salt and pepper

What to do:

  • Combine marinade ingredients and add meat. Refrigerate and allow to marinate for 1-24 hours.
  • Saute onions and bell peppers in oil, over medium-high heat, for 2-3 minutes, until softened.
  • Remove vegetables into a bowl and saute meat until cooked. Discard marinade.
  • Add vegetables back in, while heating tortillas.
  • Assemble fajitas in tortillas and add toppings; enjoy!
A great way to use leftovers is to heat them up and serve over arugula-a healthy salad!
