Reviews for Steak Fajitas
"I had to modify this to suit ingredients I had on hand. To save money I used thin-cut round steak--will not do that again! I substituted green bell pepper for the jalapeno, had to omit the cilantro. It was good, but it would have been better if I had followed the recipe more closely. Will try again."
"LOVE THESE! I used two jalapenos for extra heat and it made these really spicy and good."
"The tomato relish is awesome it really makes the fajitas amazing!"
