Spicy Beef Mexican Fajitas Recipe
A Mexican fajita is any grilled meat usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish. Popular meats used include chicken and other cuts of beef, as well as vegetables instead of meat.
