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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, pepper, cumin, oregano and salt in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
  2. Add in chicken.
  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. Saute green peppers and onion in oil until the onions are translucent and the green peppers still slightly crisp.
  5. Add in marinated meat.
  6. Cook until meat is done.
  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
