    Found this recipe on and adapted it slightly. This has incredible flavor and is a wonderful twist on "Fajita Night" at our house.

      Pretty awesome! I added 1 tbs chill powder to the beef. Could work with chicken as well, I bet.

      Pretty good! I especially loved the marinated steak... and I usually hate red meat of any kind. I didn't change anything at all, but I did add sliced serrano peppers to the dish when it was done. Tasted great with the added heat.

      DH had to work late, so I made this for dinner last night for the kids and I. We enjoyed it very much. Only comment made that wasn't top notch was "Mom, next time a little less spice would be nice" but I knew that would be the case because my oldest doesn't like anything remotely spicy...she ate it though. When I brought the recipe back up to post my review this morning, I realized that I left out one key ingredient...the sour cream. Now I can't wait to try the recipe again...only as it is written. It will probably cut down on the spice a little for my daughter. Thanks for sharing this recipe Sylvie, it is going in the keeper file!
