fiesta, fiesta

Happy {almost} Cinco de Mayo, dc readers! Anyone have any fun fiesta plans?

B and I will probably just be enjoying a few cervezas on the patio this year (after a long day of landscaping), so this adorable Mexican themed rehearsal dinner by Details Details will have to be my inspiration for a party in 2013.

To honor the day however, I think we'll plan on whipping up his family's famous fajita recipe. We make these very often for dinner because they are super easy and truly the best fajitas you will ever have. I highly suggest you add this to your recipe box.

The Galvan Family's Perfect Homemade Fajitas:

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 C extra-virgin olive oil, or so... Add more if your chicken is not coated
Juice of 1-2 limes
10-15 jalapenos (canned) or 1 jalapeno (fresh - seeds removed)
1-2 cloves of fresh garlic
1 tsp cumin
dash of cayenne
salt & pepper to taste
1 sweet vidalia onion
3-4 bell peppers (any combo of red, orange, green, yellow...)
tortillas of your choosing
sour cream, guacamole, cheese, cilantro, or any other toppings you like

Create a marinade of olive oil, lime juice, jalapenos, garlic, cumin, cayenne and s & p. Coat your chicken and marinade for at least 4-6 hours. Overnight is preferred.
Slice your peppers & onions and saute in a frying pan until you reach your desired texture and color. I like them nice & charred.
Grill your chicken, on a BBQ grill is best.
Slice your chicken & add to your peppers & onions mixture.
Serve on tortillas with the toppings of your choice and enjoy.
