    PanNan's Note:

    A relatively quick and easy recipe - good for a week night. These taste similar to the Ninfa Fajitas - a popular restaurant dish.

      welllll I never ate mama Ninfa's fajitas but these were really good!! I'm a soy sauce lover...I didn't mention to DH what was in the marinade..he loved them, he's not crazy about anyhow...I cooked my peppers with the onions. I also gave the whole thing a squeeze of lemon...perfect after work...quick meal!! Thank you!

      Yum! Hubby had to work late so this was my first time messing with his grill! I usually like beef fajitas but decided to give these a try! Just delicious!

      I don't know about comparing to Mama Ninfas but these were quick, easy & quite tasty! I used whole wheat tortillas (which I warmed in the oven) and substituted home-made salsa for the pico de gallo. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. We weren't fussy on the marinated onions - next time I'll used fried ones. Thanx PanNan!
