Beef And Chicken Fajitas Texanas

My favorite dish to order when going to a Mexican restaurant is the Fajitas Texanas. Basically, it’s a sautéed goodness of beef, chicken, and shrimp with onions and green peppers. Then you get a side plate of shredded lettuce, Spanish rice, refried beans, sour cream, and guacamole (recipe here). Luckily, I can easily to make my own version at home. Here’s a Fajitas Texanas recipe without the shrimp but it still good.
