    BecR's Note:

    This recipe pairs skirt steak (a flavorful, yet less tender cut of beef) with citrus, garlic and chile- all piled into a soft flour tortilla. The garnishes are up to you: We like pico de gallo and sour cream, but also try grilled onions and bell peppers. An easy and low-calorie Tex-Mex favorite from Ladies Home Journal Test Kitchen.

      Good, interesting recipe! After all, the orange flavor in fajitas was not our cup of tea, but well worth trying!

      This was my first time preparing fajitas but they turned out beautifully! We really loved the flavor of the meat but I did need to grill it for about 6 minutes more than called for to get it done to our liking. We topped the fajitas with taco sauce instead of the pico de gallo as I didn't have time to prepare any. We also added fried onions and cheddar cheese to them. They received rave reviews from adults and children a like. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
