Recipe by Crabbycakes

How about a different version of the old standby? A welcome change of flavors on a tortilla.

Top Review by Emerilfan

I started cooking this recipe a couple of years ago and have never looked back. It is truly sensational. My friends and I compare all the times we've had fajitas in other places and while some were very good, they just never measure up to the fresh and original flavor of this dish. My hats off to crabbycakes for coming up with this excellent combination of flavors. Bravo
