MenuDuet’s Notes: In the picture displayed;

-The Sour Cream tastes great as a topper, or dip.
We didn’t try it, but the original recipe said Guacamole is a great dip as well.

-We used Pam, non-stick spray.

This was oh so good! The tortilla’s were so crunchy, and the middle was so tasty, it was like a new twist on fajita night. The flavors were amazing, and over all the dish itself was really fast and easy to make, which is always a bonus when you are in a rush.

We spread a thin layer of sour cream on top when it was done, but the original recipe called for Guacamole as a dip as well. (Which we didn’t try).

Definitely recommend this dish, very tasty, and filling!
