Since this battles only requirement was the use of alcohol, I immediately thought about marinating fajitas in Tecate.
- 1 lb of marinated fajitas (can be found in a carniceria)
- 1 lb of marinated tablitas (thin, cross cut beef short ribs that can also be found in a carniceria)
- 1 lb of marinated chicken (can be found in a carniceria)
- 1 16 oz Tecate Beer
- 2 shots of Jose Cuervo Tequila
- 5 avocados
- 1 tomato
- 1 onion
- 4 serrano peppers
- 3 limes
This preparation is very easy since the meat was already pre-marinated. I first started by placing the meat in a big round bowl and poured the entire can of Tecate and two shots of Jose Cuervo Tequilla. I placed a plastic wrapper over the bowl and then placed it in the refrigerator for about an hour. For best results, let the fajita marinate in the beer overnight. I then placed the meat on the grill on each side for about 5 minutes. Since the fajita meat is very thing, it doesn’t take long to cook.
The guacamole is also very simple to prepare. When picking avocados, you want to make sure the avocado is soft. If its hard then don’t buy it. I placed the avocados in a bowl with sliced up tomatoes, onions and serrano peppers then mixed it up really good. For best results, add salt and lime into the mix.
For the rice, well thats a different story. My wife had to help me with that. I am good on the grill and she is the best on the stove. Overall this experience was fun. I forgot how good fajitas taste when marinaded in beer and liquor. If you have a carniceria in town, then try out the marinated fajitas. It will rock your world.
For those of you wondering what a carniceria is, it’s a Mexican butcher’s shop.
