Tequila Lime Steak Fajitas


If you didn’t already know, I sure do loooooove some Mexican food.
This tequila-lime marinade can be used on chicken too! Or, you can check out a similar chicken fajita marinade here.

Serve these fajitas with refreshing sangria, creamy guacamole, roasted garlic salsa, and fresh pico de gallo!


  • Skirt steak or Flank steak
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • 1 Tbs cumin
  • 1 Tbs onion powder
  • 1-2 tsp cayenne
  • Juice of 2-3 limes
  • Salt and pepper


1. Add all ingredients to a ziplock bag and shake to mix well.

2. Add steak and marinate for at least 3-4 hours, overnight is best.

3. Grill on high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium, depending on thickness of steak.

4. Slice thin and enjoy with homemade pico de gallo, sliced avocado, sour cream, sautéed onions and peppers, and a squeeze of lime juice! YUM!


If and only if there are leftovers (which is a BIG if), make a steak omelet for breakfast the next day!
