Last Nights Dinner - Fajitas!

So I went and picked up the stuff to make Fajitas!  First I grill the peppers whole and cut the spanish onions into 1 inch or so slices.  I grill them until they are good and charred.  About 400-450 direct.  I pull them when they look good and put them in a brown paper bag.  I crimp it and let it steam cook the rest of the way in the bag for about 10-15 minutes or so.  When I pull them out of the bag I let them cool another few minutes until I can handle them with my hands and not get burned.

Nice thing about grilled veggies is unlike meat you can cook them early on and I cover them with foil and let them sit until time to eat.  So before dinner all I had to do was prep the meat.  So here it goes!  Fajitas rub.  I usually like to do these hot and fast, but I was running out of charcoal so they really went direct around 350.  This is easy and one my summertime favorite cooks.  Its feeds a lot of people, too!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    @bonemuse, how is this off topic. If you did it accidentally, at least get back in here and say so. [-X

    Yum!  If available in your area, try grilling green chile peppers too.

    They're usually harvested end of August, although I can get them year-round in the utard groceries here.  I normally hit a place in Salt Lake City and the end of summer and buy a bushel, roasted on the spot, and stock my freezer.  (lived in Albuquerque for 5 years, that's where this german/norwegian got hooked on green chile)
