This is my sandwich entry for this week's Family/Friends Sammie. My family has always enjoyed Chinese and Mexican cuisine, so I decided to fuse the two together for this sandwich. A little bit Beef & Green Bean Stir-Fry (my favorite) with a little bit of Beef Fajitas (my husband's favorite). Hence, East Meets South of the Border Fajitas. Ingredients needed to start with the letter "f".
