Beef Fajitas

One of my favourite types of food is Mexican. I love food with flavour and the Mexicans sure know how to add zing to their dishes. I was actually in Mexico the first time I ever tasted a fajita. I remember at the time thinking it was one of the best things I had ever eaten. The fast food and boxed renditions at home didn’t even come close to what I had experienced while on vacation.  While this recipe doesn’t do a true Mexican fajita justice it will suffice until I am able to go back to visit that beautiful country and once again experience the real deal.
