Fajitas & Spicy Black Beans

Spicy Black Beans
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.

  1. Your fajita beef looks great. We made your chicken fingers the other day and loved them. Look for a post in the next couple of days – I'm getting a little backlogged.

  2. Loved it. We made it with the seasoned beans because I just now read your reply. Wasn't sure if you drained your beans or not, so I assumed you did and it worked out.

    The boys had tacos but Alexis and I used these beans, brown rice & cheese to make some bean and rice burritos. They were excellent.

    I have about 1/2 cup left over for lunch at work tomorrow.

    Great job, Steph & Legs.

  3. You poor cold people!!! And good for Legs for getting out to that grill. My Weber is still in hibernation.

    Steph, these beans are such a good idea. Black beans can be kinda bland and I've not had much luck spicing them up. Thanks for this!

  4. Yay! Proud of Legs for being bad arse like that:)

    I love fajitas, chicken or steak. Yours look perfectly cooked.

    I like the easy bean recipe too. Were they plain black beans or Bushes seasoned ones? I really wish I had some Rotel right now, the beans would be a great lunch for me.

  5. Yum, I bet the lime just adds some great flavor to the beans! I like to put lime on my cooked Mexican rice as well 🙂
