Fajita Extravaganza!

5

One of my favorite memories from this summer was gathering with 3 other couples (and 11 kids) at our friend's house for a fajita and sangria party. (You can find the sangria recipe here.) The weather was perfect for the kids to swim, the food was delicious and there ain't nothing wrong with a fajita any time of year! Here are the recipes I use. Use them at your next Mexican fiesta and you will be a big hit with your friends!
