Beef Fajitas

Beef Fajitas

"Though a very popular meal in this country, few Americans know the origins of the word fajita. These easy-to-make dinners were originally made with skirt steak, a cut of meat that looks just like a belt, or a fajo. This beef version is the classic, but fajitas are also delicious made with chicken, seafood, or vegetables."

If you like a tomato flavor with your fajitas, then this is the recipe for you. Not the traditional "grilled" flavor you get in most restaurants.

My family did not care for this recipe at all. I would not use salsa for this recipe. It really tasted terrible. I am going to delete this recipe from my box.

This recipe was excellent! Everyone loved it and wanted more. Just the right spicyness! Definitely a regular at our house. I recommend trying chicken, linguica and or shrimp too! Will

Great flavor!

This is a great way to s-t-r-e-t-c-h a pound of steak, and the salsa marinade makes it very tender. It made enough for 8 large fajitas, with filling left over for about 2 more.
