Chimichurri steak fajitas (no picture - sorry I ate them too quickly!)

Layer in a 1.5-qt. crock pot 1/2 an onion, sliced.

Brown 6 oz. of skirt steak in a little olive oil. In a bowl, whisk together 1/4 c. chimichurri sauce, 2 tbs olive oil, the juice of one lime, and salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper to taste (1/8 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1/4-1/2 tsp, respectively). Coat browned meat with chimichurri mix and place on top of onions in the crock pot. Slice one green pepper and place slices on meat. 

Cook on high 2-1/2 to 3 hours; or low 5-7 hours. Chop steak before serving.

Heat up some white corn tortillas and fill with onions, peppers, steak, and cheese (we used cheddar and Boar's Head Chipotle Gouda for a little kick!). Also salsa if desired.

We had Cuban cristianos y moros (black beans and {brown} rice) - leftovers - on the side.

On another note...

I made my weight loss goal of 20 pounds! Actually, I've dipped a little past 20 pounds. Something is working! :)
