Sundays mean a few things around here. Sleep in an extra hour or two, catch up on some reading, maybe watch a movie or TV show, and of course end the night with a delicious meal that might be a bit too involved to make on a weeknight. I will be honest and say that most Sunday nights we have a big Italian dinner, usually my Sunday sauce that’s been cooking all day, served that with gnocchi or maybe lasagna, stuffed shells and things of that sort. But this week when I was heading out to the supermarket, I asked my husband what he would like me to make this Sunday (that's how good of a wife I am) so I could get all the necessary ingredients, he choose steak fajitas with all the trimmings.
It did take a bit of prep work to make the pico de gallo salsa, guacamole, spicy black beans and everything else, but that’s what I love about cooking on weekends, I actually have the time to do it. Everything came out so good and we really enjoyed ourselves, we might have eaten a bit too much but hey, it was that good!
The recipe for the steak fajita is not only simple but its really quick, throw a marinade together, coat the slices of beef in it and let it marinade the whole day in the fridge. Having the steak pretty much out of the way ahead of time, allows me to spend a bit more time making everything else, and also sip on a margarita as a leisurely prepare the meal (don't look at me like that, I'm an adult, I can have a margarita or two..or three) Here is my recipe for my favorite margaritas,
And because no Mexican inspired meal is complete without the trimmings, here are the recipes for the salsa and guacamole.
Look at those colors!!!
Smooth, rich and delicious! :)
