I saw this recipe from Martha Stewart and thought I would give it a try because the only fajitas I normally eat are the ones from the mall. I am so glad I did because these were absolutely delicious. Surprising how easy is it was too which was nice as my husband is always ready to eat. I think the extra condiments are essential so please do not leave them out. Next time I make these I am going to try some chicken I think. Hope you enjoy your own home made fajitas.
