Still our favorite recipe - we've been using this recipe for years and it is a winner. We like to use sirloin steak and chicken breasts, and stir-fry or roast the veggies. Highly recommended!

Save a little money and skip the Mexican restaurant in favor of a homemade meal. The meat and vegetables for these colorful fajita wraps are marinated in a zesty mixture of lime, garlic, and other seasonings, giving them a flavor that's out of this world.
