EXCELLENT! This recipe delivers big in the "something different" category. Yet is safe enough for finicky eaters and not so overpowering for the faint hearted who shy away from spicy foods. Don't hesitate, add it to your cookbook now. Just prepared this meal for some friends. No leftovers. I used HEB - a grocery store chain in Texas - Preseasoned Thighs for Fajitas (mainly because they were already in the freezer). The Subtle fajita seasonings blended exceptionally well with this recipe. I recommend it.
