Fantastic Beef Fajitas Recipe

Publisher Photo
The first time I made these beef fajitas, my family couldn't get enough. The next time I had to make a double batch so everyone had enough. This is a favorite evening meal for me because it fixes up quick. It would be a good one for entertaining, too—the avocados add a nice dash of color. —Marla Brenneman, Goshen, Indiana

My family loved these fajitas! The marinade is delicious, and I served the fajitas with homemade pico de gallo. Instead of pan-frying the steak and veggies, I used a grill plate. I'll be making this recipe again soon!

These were very good. I just fried the beef and served with sweet onion and red pepper and all the fixings. Sliced cheese as well. Yummy
