My absolute favorite dish to order at Mexican restaurants is fajitas. Why? They are the most exciting, usually brought out on a sizzling hot cast iron pan, steaming and made to order!

It may not seem like the easiest thing to make at home, but it’s actually simpler than you’d think. Add the required marinade ingredients to your Magic Bullet, pour over your meat and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to allow the flavors to absorb. For the authentic experience at home, serve the fajitas still sizzling hot from your cast iron pan right onto the dinner table!
