This fajita marinade is simply delicious. Whether you love fajitas (like my husband) or prefer quesadillas (like me), this fajita marinade is incredible. The flavors blend together so well, and the oregano lends a bit of Greek essence to the flavor.
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a resealable storage bag. Add one pound chicken, beef, or sliced veggies, and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
Whenever I’m making fajitas, I make a double batch of marinade. I use half the batch to marinate the meat, and I pour the other half over the vegetables. This gives a great flavor to the vegetables as well as the meat.
When marinating meat, I always put the marinade and the meat in a resealable storage bag. I make sure to squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing it. This helps the marinade penetrate the meat, and adds tons more flavor to your meal.
