    The real Lupe Tortilla's beef fajitas are out of this world good. Hands down the best around. This recipe is the closest to the original I have come across. Tried it the first time in a five hour marinade and it was awesome. Just put another batch in for a 24 hour marinade. Should be even better!

    I gave up on making fajitas years ago because they never turned out very good, but tried again with this recipe. They were just like Lupe's fajitas! We tenderized the meat before marinading for about 4 hours, and grilled to medium rare.
