Always a crowd pleaser, Fiesta Fajitas are my gameplan for this week's tailgate. You just can't beat the flavors of Tex-Mex while getting ready for the big game. It's kind of amazing that nation-wide people enjoy fajitas and queso on gamedays. It doesn't matter if you are from New England, Oregon or Beaumont, Texas, fajitas just make for good eating! We'll have the usual chicken and beef fajitas with all the fixin's, but I usually shake it up a little by adding in some well seasoned shrimp, squirted with a little fresh lime and cooked up quickly on the grill. My friend, Mary, is also thinking of doing some pork fajitas, and Robin is bringing her uber-delicious homemade quacamole (seriously kids, I could eat an entire bowl of her quac!).
Usually, we grill everything at home, slice it and store in ziplocs which are easy to pack in the cooler. Then, we reheat everything at the tailgate. This week, we are bringing the new grill and special caddy. I'll have to post some pictures of this grill that we won last year in the HEB and Texas Beef Up Your Tailgate contest!!
Who's ready for some football! ME!
