Almost everyone loves fajitas, that is what makes them such a great meal, so why not try BBQ fajitas as well. You can use all kinds of meat and vegetables, from steak to shrimp or chicken and onions peppers etc. Of course, if you want them to be BBQ fajitas, you will need to grill the meat and add some barbecue sauce, otherwise, you could just as well have regular fajitas.
Traditional fajitas are made with flank steak, onions, and green peppers but you can use anything. Why don’t you try shrimp, chicken and/or even crab meat? Marinate for flavor and tenderness by using an acidic marinade that has vinegar and lime juice.
You can mix in oil, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne and cumin and any other favorites you have. Since the meat is cut into small pieces the marinating time is relatively short, an hour for steak is the longest, and everything else will be less. Remember these are BBQ fajitas so be careful about sugar or tomato sauce that can easily burn and ruin the meat.
When you start grilling the meat, you need to be careful not to over grill since everything is cut into small pieces. This includes the vegetables which should be cut at least in half. You can add barbecue sauce when grilling or serve dry with barbecue sauce as a condiment. Serve with warm tortillas, sour cream, guacamole and salsa and don’t forget the barbecue sauce.
This will be a treat that you will want to repeat. It is easy to make, it is fun to eat, the kids will love it and so will their friends. So have it when the kids have friends over and your BBQ fajitas will be the hit of the neighborhood. They will ask you to make them again the next time you are barbecuing without a doubt.
