Leaping into Something New!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Well, it comes around but once every four years - Leap Year that is, but if I'm being honest, we could just as well be talking about me cooking up something delish in the kitchen too...(Cereal for dinner anyone?)

When I was invited to be a part of Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger Program - I knew this would be a good opportunity for me to try & change that...Maybe combine the best of both worlds, convenient ingredients and a tasty dish all in one?

I stumbled upon a recipe for Beef Fajitas on the Hormel Foods Recipe Site...

And it fit the bill of my kitchen task criteria.

What's that you ask?
Basic, run of the mill, minimal ingredients...

Ingredients that a picky eater like myself doesn't mind...

Ladies and Gentleman...I bring you ~

Beef Fajitas!

I love love love that it says 'Beginner' -

And the ingredients list?  Yep! I can handle this too!

Ingredients (8 servings )

2 pounds beef flank steak
1 (16-ounce) jar CHI-CHI'S® 16 oz Thick & Chunky Salsa Medium
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons firmly packed brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large onions, cut in half and halves thinly sliced
1 small green bell pepper, cut into quarters
1 small red bell pepper, cut into quarters
8 CHI-CHI'S® 6 inch Fajita Tortilla, heated

The directions (as taken from the Hormel Website) could not be easier...

How was I to know that Salsa went into marinade? I let this yummy dish sit in my fridge over night...
And then my hubs fired up the grill - we LOVE grilling year round...

Flank steak and experimental peppers off the grill - YUM!

I'm happy to say this meal choice was a HIT - with me and both of my boys (I've yet to get the 6 year old to try anything like this...) and we can't wait to make these again! If the first time was this good - I am excited for next time!

It was fun to try out a new recipe - to LEAP into something different.  This month provides us with a whole extra day to use, how often do we find ourselves wishing for that?

How are you going to spend YOUR extra day?

love love flank steak, it's under rated as a meal you just need to marinate over night and it's awesome.
