    seahorse73's Note:

    Got this off of the Atkins Web site, really good!! Marinate time: 4 hours If you like the heat of hot peppers, add a big pinch of chili powder to the marinade or top the fajitas with shredded jalapeno jack cheese.

      We liked this very much. It isn't a typical spicy fajita recipe but more of a mild flavor. I added a few dashes of mexican chili powder for some spice. Very good and we'd make this again.

      I was disappointed with how this turned out. It was not as flavorful as I expected.
