    This was a fantastic and satisfying dish. We thank you for the experience! We gave it 4 stars only b/c we did find it a tad sweet for how we like our fajitas. Thanks for sharing.

    I have been searching for a fajita recipe that didn't use a commercial marinade. I was a little skeptical of the cinammon, but that is what MADE this recipe. Absolutely FANTASTIC! Better than anything we've had in Southwest restaurants, and that's hard to beat. Wish I could give this 10 stars!!
