Classic Fajitas


Tex Mex fajitas were first made with skirt steak and eaten by ranch hands. Fajitas now include steak, chicken, shrimp, fish, and even vegetables as fillings. McCormick® Fajita Seasoning brings together a classic blend of peppers and a hint of lime that adds savory Southwestern flavor to the fajita filling of your choice
