Ninfa's Fajitas Will Make You Happy

Ninfa's Mexican Restaurant is a Houston institution, and their fajitas are one of the main reasons for their ascendancy to the top of the Mexican restaurant world in Houston (very competitive, as you might imagine).  Mama Ninfa was "the" person who introduced them to Texans, and, therefore, the rest of the USA.  Anyway, I've got her recipe and I'll be cooking it up for you on Tuesday night.

You can choose beef, chicken, or combo, or, if you prefer, vegetarian portobello mushroom.  Fajitas are typically served as a plate of meat, a stack of tortillas, and a bunch of stuff you can put in with them, like grilled onions, pico de gallo, sour cream, cheese, etc.  Your order will come with tortillas, grilled onions and peppers, chili con queso, and pico de gallo.  I'm also making black beans that you can eat with the fajitas or on the side.  You can add lettuce, sour cream, jalapeƱos, rice, or whatever else you fancy.  It's a fun make your own dinner than the kids will love too!

For dessert, you can have a popsicle out of your freezer or order some tasty chocolate chip oatmeal cookies ($5).  Next week I'm hoping to have enough figs on our fig tree to offer fig preserves (so delicious over vanilla ice cream or sharp cheese).  I just have to leave one of my kids out in the yard at all times to keep the birds and squirrels away from them!

Hope to hear from you!  I'll be in the kitchen so you don't have to be!
