Okay!! I have been feeling low for couple of days:(,I could see and feel it. So I wanted to indulge myself in a good food, the one I really like. So I marinated London broil beef steak this morning to make fajitas.  If there would have been a dislike button in Facebook I am sure I will get for this recipe. It is nothing to do with taste, it is something to do with beef. It is sensitive issue to my family and friends, as it is against the religions.  I am sorry to offend. This dish is unique in many ways, as my recipes for fajitas is too herby!! The smell of fresh herbs from the beef sizzling in the skillet, the Crunchiness of slightly sauted onions and bell peppers, homemade tortillas, salsa and guacamole!!! The creaminess of guacamole!!Yum! This is like in heaven!!! Everything is from scratch!! I don’t like store bought tortillas or salsas. It is gross!! Once you learn how to make everything from scratch you wouldn’t want to go outside and eat!!! I finished making all these food in 40 minutes but it might be different for you guys !!Depends upon the cooking skills:).
