Chorizo, Poblano and Yam Fajitas with Lime-Marinated Red Onions

Ok, would someone please remove that horribly yellow photo from my blog? It has been there for nearly two weeks! Sorry I have been away so long. We have had a lot going on lately and cooking hasn't really been at the top of my priority list. I would be ashamed to share with all of you the things we have been eating lately, but honestly there hasn't been a frozen pizza episode in a long time. In any case I think I am ready to jump back in. Things have warmed up here and I am feeling more motivated. I'm also thinking about a better photo set up with these low light days. I have a hard time feeling inspired with these horrible yellow photos. I have found a lot of great directions online for a light box and maybe that is the way to go. 
These Fajitas we had last week were really quick and easy. I love the Lime-Marinated red onions. I'm thinking about making them again in a salad. I could have probably just eaten the bowl of onions with a sprinkle of feta cheese and been happy.
