For the first time in a long time, I had a kitchen accident. Cut my finger chopping cilantro. Not bad enough for stitches but bad enough to realize that cilantro BURNS!!! It was all worth it when I took the first bite of this delicious dish. I love it because you make your own fajita seasoning which tastes so much better than the prepackaged kind! I have used this same recipe for chicken, steak, and pork and it always turns out amazing!
