      Kinda bland. Considering all the prep work and tones of spicing, it seemed to lack flavour once cooked. Dissapointed.
      The packaged fatijas flavouring is better.

    1. I made this tonight for supper.   We loved it.  The lime and seasonings were right on!  I will put this in my file for sure.

  1. I made it with all the ingredients and cooked the steak on the stove top. It came out out really good, gourmet quality! it was flavorful and competes with the Fajitas at any good restaurant. This one is a keeper for sure
