Spicy Steak Fajitas

            Steak fajitas are a wonderful food to share during the cooler weather. I love to make this dish with a little extra kick when it gets cooler outside, just because mentally, I feel like I warm up from the inside out.

Steak Fajitas are a wonderful Mexican dish that can never be wrong. This dish includes peppers and onions, cheese and tender steak all rolled up into a tortilla.

            During sport seasons, I love to have a pot of fajitas ready so that during the big game, people can help themselves when they are hungry. Of course, I always keep a large bowl of chips and a dish or two of salsa available for munching on.
