Texas Beef Fajitas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MommyMakes

Daddy's fajitas. Great for a spontaneous fiesta or even a quick weeknight meal. These fajitas can go from the fridge to the table in 20 minutes. Or even packed in a cooler for camping!

The beef was so tuff and unflavored and bland how can you add hot spices and still have a bland dish? My kids refused to eat it.
