Mojito Lime Steak Fajitas

 Lately if I can add lime to it, it seems that I'm making it.  I love how it brightens up a dish and adds another contrast of flavoring.  This marinade is a little more subtle in this recipe with the sirloin than in the Mojito Lime Chicken Burritos.  So, paring it along with the Lime-Infused Sour Cream was nothing short of genius on my part.

2 lbs. of sirloin steak
1 pkg. of Mojito Lime Marinade
1/4 cup of e.v.o.
2 T. of water
2 T. of apple cider vinegar
orange sweet pepper (roasted and julienne sliced)
red sweet  pepper (roasted and julienne sliced)
chopped fresh cilantro
lime infused sour cream
tortilla shells

Lime-Infused Sour Cream:
1 cup of sour cream
juice from 1 lime

-Combine and cover to refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

-Mix together marinade package, e.v.o., water and vinegar.  Thinly slice the steaks across the grain of the meat; place in a large pan and pour marinade over the top.  Flip steaks to evenly coat and cover with saran wrap.  Place in the fridge for at least a hour.  Toss meat into a hot skillet and saute' for about 5-10 minutes depending on what temperature you prefer it at.  Place a few strips onto a warm tortilla shell along with a few slices of the sweet pepper, a dollop of the sour cream and a sprinkle of the cilantro.  Serves 4-6.  Enjoy!
