Fajitas Night

After successfully making quesadillas, I decided to try making fajitas instead for dinner yesterday. I made beef (for me) and chicken (for husband) fajitas. The sole reason I even attempted making two kinds of meat was that the marinade was exactly the same for both. Yeah, I know lazy me but whatever; I even got the meat from my in-laws! Didn't even have to go to the wet market to buy it. LOL. Yeap, even the parents-in-law indulge me; they love me like that! ;) So anyways, I used this recipe from Videojug.com. I seriously love Videojug.com. It's totally my go to for recipes that are simple and fast. And the fact that they have videos are of course a welcome. 

So this recipe turned out great, except for the tiny fact that when I ate the beef on its own the taste was a bit too cinnamon-y for me. The next time I might however, lessen the cinnamon and increase the amount of cayenne paper powder a bit. The downside is that I need to marinate the meat for at least 30 minutes before cooking so I don't think I can make it during a working day unless I am planning to eat at 10 at night; *sigh* but there are always weekends, right? Also not pictured are the sides that I served it with: wholegrain and garlic tortillas, store bought sour cream, homemade pico de gallo and cheddar cheese. NOMS! No guacamole though, too difficult to find and when found way too expensive. *yikes*

Any recipe suggestions out there? But it has to be something that is easy to whip up. Looking forward to reading your thoughts!
