My husband loves fajitas! It's the only thing he ordered while we vacationed in Mexico... every single day! I could never order the same meal everyday, but that's a different story. These shrimp fajitas he claimed were better than any he's ever eaten in a restaurant. Wow! Now that's a compliment from my fajita loving husband!
