However, if you Google it “frajitas” I can honestly say there is no other recipe for it on the entire world wide web. I’m completely serious. I’m aware that the chances of anyone Google searching “frajitas” will be, well, nil– so those of you luckies that subscribe or click over via any social media site are seeing it here first! This is an original recipe, my friends.

That night for dinner he whipped up these delicious steak frajitas in a giant skillet on our stove. I believe that was my first taste of a tex-mex-fajita-esque recipe and the moment when I fell in love with all things tex-mex(ish).
