A note about serious food allergies

Easy meals are the best for busy weeknights, but ease is not enough; combining orange juice and toothpaste is easy, but you don't want a piece of that cocktail. You do want a piece of these fajitas, which are all yum and no yuck: steak seasoned with taco seasoning, mixed with peppers, tomatoes, and onion and topped with cheese and sour cream. Ease and flavor, combined together… that's a weeknight meal for the ages.
