Killer fajita is hard to beat. I tend to just by the pre seasoned at the Mexican Meat Market for a quick fix

We used to be all about the Mexican meat markets but you get just as good of flavor and better meat for the money with the HeB stuff. Especially if with the chicken you get the thigh meat. Crazy good fajitas

Are you talking about the meat in the bag? Seems I can always taste a cure taste. Something is in there for preserving it.

La Michocana here in houston seems to have the best.

Fajita Marinada from La Michuacana (the red marinade). Every once in a while they have Fajitas Nortenia which are made from the hanging tenders. That cut of beef has a slightly different taste on its own but the marinade they use on them is awesome.

Yep. This is spot on. We can taste the preservative or something also. La michocana fajitas are the best.

I like ragin's stuff. Add a bit of whatever fruit juice is in the fridge too. Grapefruit, pineapple, etc. Careful with certain citrus, though, as it'll deteriorate the meat. 30min to an hour tops in the marinade.

Agreed. I slice them rare and wrap them in foil with some lime juice and a bit more seasoning. Then back on the pit for a couple minutes. Comes out great.

HEB has the pork fajitas also. Only place I've ever seen that does this. I prefer it over the beef.
