BBQ Steak Fajita with Cilantro Avocado Dressing

What what! Taco Tuesday! Have you caught on to a theme in our house? Well maybe I like tacos a lil...and by a little, I mean A LOT! 

Our go to is usually taco salad, but not this Tuesday. I wanted to go for something different. And did I mention, this was my first time making steak fajitas. 

The marinate is super easy to make. The recipe recommended 24 hours, but I only had time for 2 hours. And guess what? They tasted totally fab! Now I could only imagine how they would have tasted, if I had let them sit for 24 hours. I cut up some bell peppers with healthy fat, salt and pepper. Every fajita needs peppers in it.

Did you notice one plain steak? He he, that was my back up plan. A girl must always be prepared. Right? I was a little concerned on the spicey-ness, hubby is not a spicey lover. No worries, it would have been more for me!

Once everything was done, I used a quinoa and brown rice base. Layer on fresh spring greens and peppers. Then top with sliced steak and dressing. Absolutely perfect!
