    dripdripsplat's Note:

    My friend Fred calls these preppy fajitas. I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean, but I'm going to take it as a compliment. These are extremely good, but not your typical fajita. Be prepared to be amazed!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, pepper, cumin, oregano and salt in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
    2. 2
      Add in chicken.
    3. 3
      Refrigerate at least 8 hours, mushing the bag occasionally. (I put the bag into a bowl, just in case it leaks, and generally marinade it for 12 hours).
    4. 4
      Saute green peppers and onion in oil until the onions are translucent and the green peppers still slightly crisp.
    5. 5
      Add in marinated meat.
    6. 6
      Cook until meat is done.
    7. 7
      Serve with tortillas, salsa and sour cream.

      These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe other then I used regular lime juice as I didn't have key lime juice and less cilantro. We all enjoyed these. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

      Very nice fajita recipe! Good flavor and easy prep for a weeknight when you don't have time to grill. I used less cilantro, otherwise made as specified and we really enjoyed these - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009
