Loved this marinade. I made these last night for dinner and we all loved it. My 4 yr old nephew said they were the best "tacos" hes ever had! LOL I will continue to use your recipe, we love fajitas and this has a flavorful marinade that makes the dish. Thank you for sharing.
Loved these! I added some fresh cilantro to the marinade...I will be making these for our euchre bbq.
These fajitas had a delicious flavor. They weren't spicy, but I prefer adding spice and/or hot peppers to the fajitas as a topping anyway. The marinade made them pretty tasty anyway. Thanks!
