Chicken & Vegetable Fajitas

We decided to have Kim & Devin over for diner. Thought a fiesta would be nice. Had some wine, delicious spread of food and solved the worlds problems.

We made the food extra spicy. That way, we stayed thirsty 🙂 I was just disappointed that nobody would drink a shot of tequila with me.

Fajitas Fajitas

We have made Fajitas camping. At home, I prepared the veggies and used steak instead of chicken. Placed the steak and veggies in zip lock baggies and stored in cooler. We sautéd the Steak Fajitas in a cast iron pan over the fire. You could also make foil packets.

Check out our recipes for Guacamole and Pico De Gallo.

Enjoy, Jerry & Roni !!!
