Sizzling Steak or Chicken Fajitas

I love fajitas! When I stumbled across this recipe, I thought it looked easy enough I decided to give it a try. It really was easy! I don't have a fajita skillet so I just used a regular skillet, and it still turned out delicious! Serve with Spanish rice, refried beans, and a glass of margarita and you are fiesta-ready! (This recipe can also make Chicken Fajitas)

COOKING TIME: about 25 minutes
