We (by "we" I mean Chicken Legs) braved the cold and grilled fajitas this past weekend. We went all out and had steak and chicken. We marinated the flank steak and chicken in Lawry's Mesquite marinade for two days. The meat was SO good - the mesquite marinade gave it a nice smoky flavor and it had a nice hint of lime. It was really the perfect Tex-Mex Flavor. We like the mesquite marinade because it has the smokiness without having to add wood chips to our grill - we don't have a fancy grill, so this works great for us!
I made some spicy black beans to go with the fajitas. It is a simple dish, but it packs tons of great flavor. It is a good side dish or you can add them to your fajita like Chicken Legs did.
Spicy Black Beans
1 can black beans
1 can Rotel tomatoes (I used Original heat)
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan and stir to combine. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
