We really wanted to like these more, considering all of the great reviews. And I hate being the one to spoil that "streak". :-( But we found these to be too hot (and we normally like spicy foods) and lacking the authentic fajita flavors reminiscent of Mexican restaurants. All that came through was the heat, and the lime juice sort of just faded out. Unfortunately, we probably won't be making them again, and revert to using Todd Wilbur's recipe, but it was fun trying something new.
My family and I love this recipe. We've made it quite a few times already. Thanks for sharing!!
Delish! Even my very picky husband gobbles them up. The steak are our fave but both steak and chicken are good. The only thing I can get was chopping the onions very small because hubby doesn't like the texture of them. Delish
Made it with 1 lb of chicken, 1 onion, 1 green and 1 red bell pepper. Really good! I'll make it again trying other meats.
Excellent & Easy! This was super easy to make and turned out waaay better than I expected. I wanted to make chicken fajitas but was feeling lazy (and didn't have tortillas) and when I happened upon this recipe I decided to give it a try. I added a little extra marsala, some truffle salt and adobo and accidentally used garlic olive oil instead of regular but other than that followed as written and results were delicious. The whole house STILL smells amazing from this meal. Will put this one on my regular rotation of recipes to make (when my husband isn't commandeering the kitchen)!
I made this for a vegan using Beyond Meat Southwest Style Chicken - turned out great! He wants me to make it all the time! I'm glad it's easy because it's on the rotation. I'm more heavy handed with the cumin but my personal preference. Thanks!
Just yum! I marinated mine, chicken, all night and next day, cooked them up that night. Cut my chicken up with some meat shears which goes faster for me. Am used to having them like Taco Bell here which I could either get a chicken fajita or soft shell chicken taco with sour cream and the rest, they changed and don't like them any more. They never used peppers. I will try them sometime 'cuz I love them. The marinade. No lime juice so substituted lemon, cut the chili powder and cumin in half because I like just a hint of it, got it just to taste. Also added about 1 tbsp soy sauce. Then I cooked it all up and cut up all my extras, lettuce, tomatoes, had a pkg of Cheddar Jack cheese and, fresh sour cream. Oh most important. The cilantro. Was used to just little bits of it so added some chopped when I did the chicken after I did the onions, put back together (see my photo of the chicken filling). Put just a little chicken boullion broth at the end to moisten, salt just right luckily easy to overdo the salt. Double yum. Thank you for sharing.
Really delicious! Thanks Rhonda *J*
No conversation at the table tonight - too busy eating. A quick, tasty and healthy meal. I did use chicken instead of beef. Next time, I will try beef...
I made these last night for dinner with chicken & everyone loved them! For 5 people, I doubled the recipe and we had very little left over. I did everything exactly as written except I cooked my chicken in the oven on a baking sheet until it was just cooked, chopped it up, and tossed it in the skillet with the peppers & onions at the end. This marinade is amazing! Very authentic taste & so easy to make! This is the only fajitas recipe I'll use from now on. Will definitely make again & again! Great job, Rhonda *J*! :)
