Using my homemade chipotle seasoning makes this marinade very versatile!
This Chipotle Beef Fajita Marinade uses my Homemade Chipotle Seasoning. You can use it for flank steak, skirt steak, chicken, seafood and vegetables. I always make a huge batch when I make it. It’s great to have it on hand for times like these when I want to make this quick marinade or add some spice to my favorite dishes.
Is this fajita marinade healthy?
This fajita marinade is a bit healthier than other marinades as it uses fresh ingredients and less oil than most. For true WW Smart Points, calculate how much marinade you actually use after you drain it off – the calories and points provided at the end of the recipe are a rough estimate. Obviously not all of the marinade stays on the meat or veggies.
Can you use the leftover marinade as a sauce?
Yes, but be sure to cook the marinade thoroughly before you use it. Remember raw meat has been sitting in it for hours, so be sure to bring the marinade to boil for a few minutes before you serve it.
