Chicken & Beef Fajitas with Zesty Salsa

It's been awhile since my last post as I was away on vacation. It is great to get away and it is wonderful to be home and be in my own kitchen. I have some out-of-towners this week, and this would be great for a simple and light meal. I served my fajitas with different kinds of meat (beef, fish, chicken), as this will allow my guests to have fun selecting the meat of their choice and making their own fajitas.
Ingredients: (serves 4)
4 thin slices of sirloin tip
2 slices of tilapa (optional)
2 chicken breasts or thighs meat (bone remove)
6 ripe tomatoes, skin removed and chopped finely
1 small semi-ripe mango, skin removed and chopped finely
2 ripe avocados, seeds removed and mashed
1 package guacamole mix
Juice of 4 limes or lemons
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 onion, chopped finely
4-5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. fish sauce
1 Tbsp. Teriyaki sauce
2 Tbsps. beef marinade (of your choice)
salt and pepper to taste
some sugar to taste
1 package flour tortilla
lettuce, washed and drained
sour cream (optional)
1. Season beef with your favorite marinade and some garlic. Rub fish with salt and pepper, then season with fish sauce and a teaspoon of lemon/lime juice. Lastly season chicken slices with Teriyaki sauce and a teaspoon of sugar.
2. Grill or brown meat till cooked. Sliced meat in thin strips and keep warm.
3. Put avocados in a bowl and mashed with a fork, add in 2 tablespoon of lemon/lime juice followed by the guacamole mix. Stir to mix and season to taste. Keep refrigerated.
4. In a bowl, add onions, chopped tomatoes, mangoes, cilantro, rest of the garlic and lemon/lime juice. Mix well and season to taste with some sugar, salt or pepper.
5. Gently heat both sides of the flour tortilla and serve with prepared meats, sour cream, lettuce, guacamole and salsa.
