This was a simple and quick way to have eveything cooked at once for fajitas. I used chicken instead of beef (personal prefrence) and marinated mine in the lime and dressing in a bowl for a couple of hours... I personally missed the flavor of garlic and cummin in traditional ones but these were a fun change..thanks.
