One of my coworkers suggested (jokingly I think) that I start food blog.  Well, surprise!  I actually did it.  I snapped some photos of the meal I made tonight, and here it is.  The only problem: I don't measure things - at all.

So, tonight's meal...what I can fajitos (a burrito without the beans + veggies).  Of course you could alter this to add whatever, but here's what use:
The Meat:
- steak (doesn't really matter what kind, I usually go with whatever is cheap)
- onion (chopped)
- cilantro
- garlic (diced)
- seasoning (you could use whatever you normally use in tacos, burritos, or fajitas, but I used garlic salt, Mexican chili powder, and cyan pepper) 
- lime/lime juice

The Veggies:
- onion
- pepper
- olive oil

The Rice:
- rice
- garlic
- cilantro
- lime
- tomato

Cooking it all is pretty easy.  Brown the steak, throw in the onion, garlic, cilantro.  Cook until done, season near the end, and viola!

Meanwhile, throw in the the onion/pepper with some olive oil, cook on medium-high to get the nice seared look/taste.

You can put on some rice while you're at it.  I like to season it with cilantro, garlic, lime and sometimes tomato.

When you're all done, top with whatever toppings you like best (I threw on salsa, guacamole, cheese, and sour cream).

It seems so basic that I feel silly posting it, but maybe it will give you some ideas.  The real secrets are cilantro and lime.  Oh, at it only takes about 30 min to make if you cook it all at the same time.
