Wild oregano adds a great flavor to many dishes

Last week, I dug out some of the dried wild oregano that I have stored in the pantry and made a couple of items that we’ve been enjoying and thought I would share one with you.

Wild Oregano Fajitas
This makes enough for our large family of 8. You might need to adjust for your family.

1 cup Olive oil
2/3 – 3/4 cup red wine vinegar
4 teaspoon dried wild oregano
4 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoon garlic powder (or, I prefer fresh garlic – to taste)
2 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
(can also add some chopped wild onions in season!)

Mix all of these in a glass bowl, then pour over thinly sliced meat of your choice in a 13″ glass baking pan, then put in the fridge overnight. Then broil in a pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes. Serve with sides of lettuce, salsa, beans, guacamole, and other Mexican dishes!

Classes are coming soon!

Don’t forget that our 2010 classes will be kicking off in the next couple months. Our schedule will be posted soon, so be sure to keep checking here to get that information.

Thanks for reading.
