Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo – so what better recipe to post today than one inspired by the great flavors of Mexican and Southwest cuisine. While purists may complain that fajita traditionally refers to a specific cut of beef, no one can argue that the word today has been broadened to include any number of meats seasoned, grilled, and mixed with sautéed bell peppers and onions and served with a healthy helping of guacamole.
This recipe needs to marinate overnight, so you’ll want to run out and get the ingredients today so that you can have these ready to serve at your fiesta tomorrow!

Traditional mole recipes often have 20 or more different ingredients, and may require days to be prepared by hand. Nearly every family in many regions of Mexico have their own special recipe – some of which are closely guarded and handed down through the generations only to other family members. Preparation of these special and laborious sauces is often reserved only for special occasions and large gatherings.
I will make no attempt here to fully recreate one of these sauces. Instead, I will shorten the ingredient list a bit, cheat time with the use of modern electric prep tools, and stretch the true interpretation of a traditional mole just a little (through the addition of vinegar and the absence of dried chili powders) to come up with a recipe that can be ready in under 30 minutes and is awesome over or along-side just about any Southwest or Latin American inspired dish.
