  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 2 tbsp ghee

Method

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place flank steak in a deep dish pan and pour marinade over it. Cover with saran wrap. Marinate for 48 hours. (!!!!!) Flip steak at 24 hours.
  2. Heat a large sauté pan or cast iron. Add two tablespoons of ghee. Sautee the bell peppers and onions on medium heat for about 25-30 minutes. Remove and place on a plate.
  3. With a sharp knife slice flank steak into thin pieces. Add to heated skillet and cook until done to your liking. Remove meat from the skillet and add to the sautéed veggies.
  4. Make the guacamole: Combine avocados, garlic, lime juice in a medium sized bowel. Using a knife and a fork, cut and mash until it is as creamy or as chunky as you desire. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Season with more salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Make the mango salsa by combining all the ingredients in a medium bowl.
  6. Using the same skillet as before- heat tortillas one at a time. Flipping to toast either side.
  7. Assemble your fajitas!!!!
