Titli's Tips
Serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

You can use the same recipe with chicken. You can also spice up the fajitas a bit more by adding some chilli powder into the marinade mix.

A different way of serving is to simply pile everything onto a plate and put the warmed tortillas on the side.
