Chicken and Beef Fajitas

Fajitas! Chicken AND beef in fajitas?  Why not?  This one from my personal computer files - added over a year ago but I have no idea where from.


2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chipotle seasoning
1 cup Italian dressing
6 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
4 pounds flank steak
20 (8-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
Toppings: sour cream, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, shredded Cheddar cheese

Combine the chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, pepper, salt garlic powder and chipotle seasoning. Mix the dressing with the dry seasoning mix. Pour half the marinade in a shallow dish or large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add chicken. Cover or seal. Pour remaining marinade in a separate shallow dish or large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; add beef. Cover or seal; chill chicken and beef 2 hours.

Remove chicken and beef from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium heat (300° to 350°) about 15 minutes on each side or until chicken is done and beef is at desired degree of doneness. Cut chicken and beef into strips. Serve in flour tortillas with desired toppings.Print Friendly and PDF
