Tex Mex fajitas were first made with skirt steak and eaten by ranch hands. Fajitas now include steak, chicken, shrimp, fish, and even vegetables as fillings. McCormick Gourmet Collection Fajita Seasoning brings together a classic blend of red pepper, jalapeños, bell peppers and a hint of lime that adds savory Southwestern flavor to the fajita filling of your choice.
5 teaspoons McCormick Gourmet Collection Fajita Seasoning, divided
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Collection Oregano
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak or boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 medium onion, cut in thin strips
1 bell pepper, cut in thin strips
Flour tortillas
Optional toppings: salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, sour cream

Combine 4 teaspoons fajita seasoning with oregano, oil and vinegar in a bowl or self-closing plastic bag. Add beef or chicken; turn to coat. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lift meat strips from marinade and place in heated skillet. Sauté over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1 teaspoon Fajita seasoning over meat strips. Add onion and bell pepper; cook and stir 5 to 6 minutes longer or until meat is done and vegetables tender.
