Fantastic Beef Fajitas

The first time I made these, my family couldn’t get enough, so the next time I made a double batch. This is a favorite for me because it comes together so fast. It would be great for entertaining, too. —Marla Brenneman, Goshen, Indiana

    Fantastic Fajitas!!!! I usually opt for an seasoning packet but ran across this and noticed I had all the ingredients on hand. I will NEVER buy another seasoning packet for fajitas again! So full of flavor and tender. Perfect for grilling outside on our flattop.

    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.

    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!
