Beef Fajita Rice Salad

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Gingerbee

Great refreshingly simple dish quick to make and for all to enjoy during Mexican cookoff! Summer easy and will fill the hungry man! I made this last night and everyone loved it! It was on a supermarket flyer I picked up at the meat counter in Albertson's.

This is a good recipe but be careful when making it...the ingredients are not in the right order so carefully read before making. The oil is also left out of the ingredient list. I used chicken since we enjoy that more in fajitas and salsa instead of picante sauce. Reworked, this could be a good recipe. Thanks for posting!
