Beef Fajitas

Beef Fajitas are a quick 30 minute go to meal for us, we usually use a boneless cut of beef for this but we also make them if we have left over beef in the fridge such as roast left from Sunday dinner, left over steak from a BBQ the night before and we have even used left over chicken or pork. No need to change the recipe if you change the protein. Serve these fajitas with your toppings of choice, we like salsa, sour cream, hot sauce, guacamole, cheddar and hot sauce, you could even add some cooked rice for a heartier meal.
