Use either venison or elk in this recipe, and you'll be pleased with the results! "My husband asks for these fajitas frequently," relates Daniell Rissinger of Dauphin, Pennsylvania. "He enjoys big-game hunting and usually comes home with an elk. To finish off the meal, we add some Mexican rice and corn bread."
