I'm dying for some lime-tinged fajitas about now... Optional toppings include: salsa, guacamole, sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro, sliced green onions and chopped Serrano chiles.

Made this for our Memorial Day cookout. Very yummy! I used 4 large chicken breasts. The peppers were green and red. A beautiful, colorlful dish served with yellow rice, guacamole and corn tortllas. A definate keeper.
