These are fabulous and so easy! I serve these with corn and black bean salsa. This is one of DH's favorite meals!

Was a little plain so the second time I added tomato bouillon with chicken flavor ,about 2 1/2 table spoons of that, and used 6 limes instead of a dash of lime juice. It came out much more flavorful!

These were ok, but DH and I agreed that they were a little bland compared to what we're used to, so that's the reason for the 4-star rating. Otherwise, they were very easy to make. Just needed a little more zip. Maybe I'll add more lime juice next time.

I used the exact ingredients listed, but I don't measure often and didn't this time. I know I used quite a bit more of the lime juice. My bell peppers were also orange, green, red and yellow. Wow, this is great and very easy. I had never made fajitas before. By the way, I used chicken. Good! Good!
