"Grilled" Fajitas

Today for dinner it was "clean out the fridge night."  We grilled a few times last week, and I had some leftover steak and leftover chicken.  Hmmm.... What to do?  How about fajitas?  Yes!

First, slice an onion (or half an onion if it's giant-sized like the one I used).

Next, slice 3 bell peppers.  I used one red, one orange, and one yellow.

Next, place a skillet on the stove, turn on the burner, and add a little EVOO (maybe 1 tablespoon).

Add the onion and bell peppers to the hot skillet.  While the vegetables are sauteing, take a little time to cut the leftover meat into slices.  I used 2 lbs. steak, top round, and 2 chicken breasts; both had been grilled with a little Montreal Steak Seasoning.  Mmmm!.

When the vegetables are crisply tender, add the meat to the skillet, as well as one of these seasoning packets and about 1/4 cup water:

Turn the heat down and let everything simmer until the meat is heated through.  In the meantime, heat flour tortillas on a griddle.  Serve meat and vegetable fajita mixture with tomatoes, shredded cheese, and sour cream.

Oh, and we really enjoyed a little lime juice squeezed over everything for a little zing.  Delicious!
