When I am in need of a quick dinner, I usually make some kind of stir-fry combining whatever protein I have in the house and whatever veggies I have around. Last night I decided to do this and make simple fajitas with a quick, home-made fajita seasoning and some skirt steak. Throw in any veggies you want and adjust the spice according to your preferences. This can also be made with chicken and for folks in the Attack phase or on protein only days, this can easily be made without the veggies.
