“I LOVE fajitas, but restaurants seem to , well, kinda rip you off on the meat part! LOL! Seems there are an AWFUL lot of peppers and onion...PLUS, gosh, why is everything SO expensive? So much better to make them yourself! This is my "concoction", I love them with Spanish Rice (Zatarain's), and any kind of dip/salsa and chips! Make them at home and your house will smell so good the neighbors will be knocking at your door! *You can easily make a half a batch, too.”
