This has become a total family favorite- we make it for special occasions now. We omit the green onions and red onion. We use your regular old fashioned white onion, about half of one. I typically use way more than 2 bell peppers- at least 5 or 6- so that the meal stretches out for a few more servings. Also, I don't just use green bells, I prefer to use yellow, orange, and red so that the dish has a lot of color to it. We also typically add in a couple sliced roma tomatoes.
I made these last night and LOVED them! I used a 16 oz. frozen bag of jumbo shrimp that i chopped into quarters. I used 1 bell pepper and 7 green onions and it was perfect. I would say tho that the shrimp needed a bit of a kick maybe so next time I think I will add a bit of cayenne to the marinade but other than that the flavors were awesome! I served it on flour tortillas with cilantro, sour cream, chalula hot sauce, and an avocado mixture with lime, cilantro, cumin, cayenne, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. What a healthy and yummy dish, thanks for sharing, I will for sure make this again! Who would have guessed it was this easy to make your own fajitas?!?! *I just made these again last night only using chicken instead of shrimp and it turned out just as good. I guess this would even work with steak or anything else you wanted to use it for. Love this recipe! :) Also i added a little olive oil to the marinade so I could let it soak for a few hours in the marinade and not cook too much from the lime juice.
This was quite yummy and very easy. I added one small onion, a handful of chopped cilantro and a few sliced in half tiny tomatoes to the peppers while sauteing. I also added a little salt, pepper and garlic powder to the pepper and onion mixture. We served these with cheddar cheese, sour cream, shredded lettuce and salsa. This is a wonderful dish that I will surely make again. Thanks for sharing!!
Delicious and simple. I had to substitute white onions, sliced, for the green onions, and we served with guacamole. Even the picky seven year old enjoyed it, onions and peppers included. Thanks for posting.
Awesome! I made them just as stated and we loved them!! Thanks so much. The only thing I'd do different next time is add a habanero pepper to the onion and pepper mix to spice it up a bit, but otherwise it was so good! Thanks!
We tried these last night and loved them. Just wish they were a little more saucy! I added some zest of the lime for an extra lime kick. I also used fresh cilantro instead of the oregano and real garlic. I used red pepper (ripe green pepper - much tastier and better for you!) and white onions, as I didn't have scallions, but I will try with scallions next time. There will definitely be a next time. Will also add a bit of chopped green chillies to the marinade next time, as we felt it could use a bit of heat! Yum - thanks for sharing!
Yummy, yummy! I simply love shrimp fajitas, and these were just what the doctor ordered. I used a regular yellow onion instead of the green onions, and grilled the veggies and the shrimp on a cast iron griddle. Unfortunately, I was unable to use fresh cilantro in this recipe, as my plant died and the grocery store did not have any cilantro. That's the only thing I can think of that would have made this any better. Well, that, and maybe some fresh pico de gallo. I will most definitely make this again. Thanks! :)
This recipe is another one of those that is just excellent, I used both beef and shrimp in mine, cooked the beef longer than the shrimp of course, but marinated them both. This is the closest thing I have had to what I get in a Mexican food establishment that I have come across. By all means a keeper. Thanks for posting the recipe.
This was simple, fast, and fantastic. I added some yellow onion and hot peppers and cooked it on the grill. I will definitely be making this again and again.
Made these last weekend and they were a huge hit!
