Grilled Fajitas

Colleen Sowa


Our family loves this recipe... we make it often. We have made the meat and veggies on the grill and froze it for a cold winter's day too...

This allows everyone to pick out what they want for topping off their tortilla!

We also save the left overs for other recipes.

*** We have made these with pork, chicken, beef and even ground beef.
