Beef Fajitas

Alright, this has got to be one of the toughest recipe that I have undertaken so far. It's not THAT difficult, it's just SUPER time consuming and tedious as everything was made from scratch. You can easily take a short cut by opting for a store-bought guacamole and salsa. I thought that since I'm gonna take the time, I might as well go the extra mile (Well, I did buy ready made tortilla from the supermarket though). The trick is to prepare the beef first whilst you get on with the condiments. So, Halo everyone to Mexicano food!
