To me, there is nothing better than spending time outside during this time of the year when the weather is just perfect. Nice, cool and comfortable and with no bugs. It’s a good time to grill outside and great time to eat outside.
This is a really great tasting recipe that is simple to make and is really great to eat. Actually, it is some really fine eating folks. Great for fajita wraps. Serve it with a Mexican rice dish, a cold corn salad and of course, ice cold beverages.
