Nicole's StoryMy adopted hometown has a lot of ethnic diversity -- including a large Latino segment. What this means is a really great variety of authentic Mexican restaurants. And I fell in love with fajitas. In my quest to find a make-at-home fajita recipe, I came across this one in a Reader's Digest (Hunts) recipe. Easy, makes a nice presentation, can work easily as a take-away recipe, it's nearly perfect. My only problem is that you don't get the crusty bits from searing them on a cast iron skillet. . .
flank steak, cut into thin strips
14 1/2 oz
diced tomates with mild green chilies
green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
onion, cut into thin strips
flour tortillas, fajita size

I made these on Thursday night and they were really good will be making them again. It is so easy to make since I am just learning to cook.

Is there anything i can use instead of tomatoes?

I think, with the oil, you could probably leave them out. Are the seeds the problem? Or, if you just can't stand tomatoes, maybe you could try tomatillos instead (a kind if green tomato).
