Today we feature the Spam Fusion Fajitas from Jimmy Buffet’s at the Waikiki Beachcomber. This is actually an award winning entry from Stay Slagor of San Diego who won the national Great American Spam Championship. It was chosen from over 800 entries and as a prize Stacy won a trip to Hawaii to attend the Spam Jam. We have never done this in our photo blog history but here is the winning recipe. If you do it right it will look like the photo you see.
