Tequila Lime Fajitas in the Garden

fajita 1

The weather today was perfect and I decided to capitalize on the wonderful weather by having dinner outside in the garden. Hopefully tonight was just a glimpse of the meals we will get to eat out in our new backyard. For dinner I made tequila lime marinated flank steak that I then grilled along with some red peppers and corn on the cob. Mix that with some black beans, green chili brown rice, avocado, and whole wheat tortillas and you have your self one awesome dinner.

For the marinade I mixed half of a finely grated onion, with a shot of tequila, and the juice of 2 limes. I also added some salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin to taste. I let it marinate in a plastic Ziploc bag for a few hours before cooking it on the grill.

Now, not only am I full, but I feel healthy as well. Well the healthy part is also because I was able to sneak in a 3 mile walk/run this morning with my mom while my wonderful husband watched Madeline. Here are a few pictures of dinner that I snapped with my phone before I chowed down.
