Beef Fajitas
We LOVE fajitas in our house. There is something beautiful about a dish that is so simple, but is still so delicious. Another wonderful thing about this dish is that it's not one size fits all. Each person can put exactly the right amount of fixings on their tortilla to fit their palette. This recipe is also very flexible, feel free to mix and match whatever veggies you have on hand to make your fajitas unique.
