Steak fajitas are very popular in Mexico and there are various ways to make steak fajitas recipes. Grilled fajitas taste very good and are great to make on warm summer evenings when everyone is outside. The steak in this grilled fajitas recipe is marinated in vinegar, lime juice and cayenne to make it tasty and give it a hint of citrus.
The bell peppers and onion are found in all authentic Mexican fajitas recipes and the cheese, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole are traditional Mexican garnishes for this kind of dish.
