Tequila and fresh lime juice are part of a quick marinade that gives these beef fajitas a bright flavor.
I used this marinade today on rib steaks for the bbq. I decided to use this marinade because it was quick, used lime and tequila which I had on hand. I cooked it at very high heat about 600 on the BBQ. As it was cooked I spooned a bit of the marinade on it to flavor the steak further. I loved the result, subtle flavor which did not overwhelm the good cut of steak I chose to grill.
The fajitas are tasty and relatively quick to make since the recipe doesn't require marinating the meat. There's no reason to stress if you don't have tequila. I made this recipe with tequila but couldn't detect even the faintest tequila flavor in the finished fajitas. Beer or any fairly neutral-tasting liquor like cognac or vodka most likely would do just as well as tequila--or skip the alcohol altogether and increase the amount of lime juice you use.
