Steak Fajitas with Chimichurri and Drunken Peppers

Watch out! There’s a gringa in the kitchen and she’s camping out all week in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. It’s the one time of year I can fill the kitchen with Mexican recipes and Handsome has to sit back and deal. Normally, he like’s our ‘Mexican’ dishes, basic tacos and our version of enchiladas. Once he hear’s the word Mexican in conjunction with food he curls in the fetal position because of one tragic mole experience. I haven’t convinced him that not all mole’s are the same and that not every item on the menu has a mole sauce on it… But still, my house, and occasional nights out are sadly deprived of much loved Mexican cuisine.

So grab your sombrero because I am living it up for the week!


  1. Those drunken peppers are welcome to my home anyday!

  2. I’m seriously drooling at the sight of these fajitas.

  3. Yes and YES! love all of these flavors you got goin’ on!

  4. Woohoo! I will make up for his lack of enthusiasm over this and the rest of the thingsyou post this week!

  5. Oooooooh. This looks to die for! :) Love the perfectly pink steak!

  6. Holy yummy fajitas! Looks completely irresistible!

  7. Dish looks fantastic as always! I finally had a wonderful mole the other day and now I know not all mole are created equal!!!!

  8. I was JUST mentioning to Jon that I want to make him flank steak with chimichurri. SO stoked you just posted this so I don’t have to go searching for a recipe!

  9. Those drunken peppers sound like my kinda holiday! Did you at least get a Mexican beer to go with them? Sigh, fajita’s are probably my one true love. I wish a restaurant would come out with “all you can eat fajita’s”… now THAT would make my day!

    I just made these and they were awesome! I didn’t have poblanos so I just used jalapenos instead and added a little goat cheese and homemade pickled jalapenos for serving and they were amazing! Awesome recipe, thanks!


    This dish is simply superb. Made it for a Sunday gathering, and everyone loved it.

  12. Yum! Thanks for a great inspiration and just in time for Cinco de Mayo! Pinning!
