To make Chicken or Beef Fajitas… Thinly slice the meat and cook to the desired doneness in a saucepan with a bit of EVOO.  Sprinkle Seasoning on meat and stir to coat evenly.   Add 1/4 cup Chicken/Beef stock or water to deglaze the pan. This will make a thin sauce.  In a separate bowl,  mix 1 Tbsp. Cornstarch to 1/4 cup Beef/Chicken Stock or water.  Mix thoroughly to make a light slurry, then add to the meat.  Simmer until the mixture reaches the desired thickness.
