Vegetable Fajitas

The longer the veggies marinade, the better. You can make up the veggies the night before and put them in the marinade - just refrigerate the veggies and take out them out about 1/2 hour before you want to cook them to bring them to room temp.

If you like asparagus, you can even add it to the mix. Just cut into 3" pieces.

I can make a meal on these alone, but you could serve with refried beans and rice. (You could even put these on your fajita!)
