The best fajitas recipe I have tried in a long time. Even the kids loved it!



I made these last night and marinated the meat like suggested....after cooking the meat definitley needed salt. The flavor was OK-the lime was too overpowering for my Husband and I didn't use as much as the recipe called for. I guess I expected more and wasn't impressed at all.



Very tasteful. Requires a bit of work, but certainly some of the best we have had.
