Rockin' Fajitas

Texas Roadhouse Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

Your choice of meat... four boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or four sirloin steaks, or combo of both

1 bottle of Italian dressing
1 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2-3 rosemary and sasil sprigs
quarter two limes, two lemons, and one orange

Pico De Gallo:
2-3 whole tomatoes, diced
half a large yellow onion, chopped
jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

To make the Marinade: Add meat... use a separate container if combining chicken and steak Marinate overnight or for at least several hours

To make the Pico De Gallo: Best, if prepared several hours before adding to Fajitas. Mix those ingredients, then squeeze a lime over mixture, add pinch of Garlic Salt, and Granulated Garlic and stir

To make the Fajitas:  After meat has marinated for several hours, remove and grill until Medium-Well (the meat will finish cooking when added to the vegetables) In a separate pan, cook vegetables in 3 tablespoons olive oil... use red, green, yellow, orange peppers, or any combination of those, and an onion... cut vegetables into thin strips and cook with a pinch of fresh garlic until just tender Add meat and toss until meat and vegetables are done

To Serve: Add this mix to a warmed tortilla, top with Pico de Gallo... and sour cream or cheese (but we think they're so good, you won't need it!)
