Dinner on a stick is as fun as it is delicious. I love fajitas, but in a restaurant they can be an expensive meal. 

A pound of protein – shrimp, chicken, pork tenderloin, or beef, a pepper, a couple slices of bacon and some simple salsa ingredients are under $15 at most stores. When was the last time you bought such a nice meal for 4 people for that little?

My dinner on a stick is a tasty Fajitas with a Creamy Mexican Salsa. Susan Maria’s dinner on a stick is charred marinated pork fajita with tender summer vegetables – zucchini, yellow squash, red onion, portobello mushroom, mmmmm. We’ve also featured a fajita chicken and vegetable skewer, yum!

One recipe for four different dinners! Perfect. And the sauce is out of this world and makes it all so easy to eat!
