Reviews for Fantastic Beef Fajitas
"These were SO easy and tasty! I prefer mildly spiced foods and this was perfect for me. My husband likes it a bit hotter so he topped his fajitas with some chipotle pepper powder."
"Marinade is very good!"
"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!"
"Needs more zip!!"
"I kept craving more of these."
"this was easy and it will be a recipe i will share with friends and family"
"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"
"Very tasty! Next time I will include the avacados; I'm sure they will be even better."
"These Were Very Good! I Would Recommend Them To Anyone.ForThose Saying It's Not "Mexican", you Clearly HaveNoIdea About The History Of FajitasFajita Is Simply A Term For Strips Of Meat Grilled And Served On A Corn Or Flour Tortilla. There Is No Right Or Wing Way. And It's Not Mexican - It's Tex-Mex. Get With The Program."
"Didn't make it a first time. I can see by the ingredients it will have zero flavor."
