    HeidiSue's Note:

    We've tried several fajita recipes & finally this is it! I found this recipe online and have tweaked it to our liking. Make it with beef or chicken. Great for having a fajita party!! Prep time includes minimum marinating time.

      I made this last week, and it rivals fajitas in good Mexican restaurants. We use Mission low carb soft tortillas to save on the carbs and calories (I do not have any financial interest in Mission products).
