    ChefDarlingNikki's Note:

    I made these last night and they are WONDERFUL!! I went to the Weight Watchers website and I figured these as 6 points per serving (Serves 4 - two fajitas each). This does not include, cheese, sour cream or any sides.

      I will definitely make these again. I added some lime juice to the marinade and cooked the meat and veggies in a skillet, but they were still delicious.

      Really good, despite cutting down the marinating time. Too cold to grill, so I cooked this in a skillet. I will make again and next time, I will plan ahead!

      We really enjoyed these. I grilled them as posted. The veggies are on the chunky side so I just cut them down a bit. This makes a lot. I cut the recipe in half and it made enough for 4 people because trying to eat two of these fajitas is just too much. I used the leftover marinade to baste the food while it was grilling. Served a droplet of sour cream and some salsa on top and it was good to go. Served Easy Black Bean and Corn Salad as a side dish. Made for Spring PAC 2010. Thanks for posting. :)
