Fajitas on the Grill

I made these and had 2 nights of grilled fajitas and a little more left over for lunches. They were SO good!! This is my new "go to" recipe for fajitas!! Recipe from: Our Best Bites

1/4 C fresh lime juice (2 limes)
1/3 C water
2 T vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
3 t vinegar
2 t soy sauce
2 t liquid smoke
1 t salt
1/2 t chili powder
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/4 t ground black pepper
1/4 t onion powder
I put the ingredients in the VitaMix and blended. I also upped the amount to 1 1/2 times the marinade)
Steak or chicken (I used 3 lbs)
Peppers: about 3 large ones A mix is ideal: Red, Yellow, and Orange.
1 large Onion (we wished we'd actually used more onion)
Before you put the meat in, reserve a little marinade to use when cooking. (1/4 cup) Then toss in the chicken or steak, and bell peppers and onions. Marinade for at least 4 hours, but longer if possible. Then grill outside on the bbq on skewers. After they are done: slide steak and veggies into a bowl and toss with the reserved marinade. Serve with tortillas, tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream!
