Rotel Fajitas

Rotel Fajitas - THE BEST fajitas! SO easy and CRAZY good! Marinate chicken or skirt steak in Rotel, beer, lemon juice, Worcestershire, garlic and pepper. Add onions and peppers to the skillet for great flavor. Our favorite Mexican recipe!

I am completely obsessed with these fajitas.  I’ve made them three times in the last three weeks.  They are the best fajitas I’ve ever made at home.  Seriously!  The fajitas are marinated in a mixture of beer and Rotel tomatoes.  We let the meat marinate overnight to get the most flavor we could in the meat.  I was worried about the beer flavor, but I couldn’t taste it once the meat was cooked.  (We used a bottle of Dos Equis beer)

Chicken Legs grilled the skirt steak and I sautéed the onion and pepper on the stove.  The results were fabulous!  They tasted as good, if not better, than any restaurant fajitas.  As I said, we’ve made these three times; once with beef and twice with chicken.  They were both delicious!  Put these on your menu this week – you won’t be disappointed!

  1. I love fajitas. This recipe sounds amazing. Can't wait to try it. I've never heard of skirt steak, so this will be a learning experience.

  2. We used that recipe for some of the very first fajitas we ever made back after Alexis and I first got married. They were good then and they are good now!

  3. So the beautiful red chunks in the photo are from salsa, not Rotel tomatoes, which are merely a marinade ingredient and dumped before cooking everything else? Just clarifying, because I really wanna make these!

  4. Hi Steph,
    These look so delish! Have to try.
    I think you and I have similiar ideas on food photography, getting close in and deleting a lot of the background seems to work well. Great job!

  5. Fajitas always smell so good. I like them, but have always ordered them without bell pepper.

    That is the one ingredient I just can't make myself like…and tofu…lets not forget it…something about the mouth feel on that one. But, back to the bell pepper. Hate the taste, hate the texture, just plain ol hate it. oops…TMI, I'm sure
