    I cut back a bit on the spice because the kids really are sensitive but it was tasty! And there weren’t any complaints 🙌

    Very tasty and easy, I accidentally used way too much oregano because I used ground rather than dried but lesson learned. I used the full peppers and half an onion.

    So tasty!! I had to double the recipe becuase the servings only fed 2 maybe 3 people at most. But other than the serving size it was delicious and will definitely make again.

    Very good recipe - I make it at least once a month (my family likes it much better than restaurant fajitas because this recipe is not greasy at all). Usually I follow the recipe as written, but occasionally I’ll add fresh diced jalapeño with the peppers and onions (my family likes heat). I also sometimes serve the meat/veggie combo on a bed of fresh spinach and top it with fresh salsa, shredded cheese & crushed tortilla chips. Delicious!

    Great but not sure how much 1 serving is...I’m on a diet & would like to log my calories...I only see amount of cal per serving, not what each serving is

    First time making fajitas ever and this was very good! The flavor was just right. I’m not a big fan of onions so I skimped on them and only added half of a small one but I’ll use a whole one next time and adding more peppers. We will be adding this to our rotation every month!
    Delicious but next time I will double the onions and peppers. Didn’t even need the salsa will definitely make it again

    Doubled the peppers and onions. Cut marinade by 1/3 gave good seasoning with minimized waste.

    Easy and tastes great! I marinated about 4 hours in the large ziplock bag. Used just a pinch of crushed red pepper and about half a teaspoon of chili powder but otherwise followed the recipe. Every bit as good as any restaurant fajitas that I have eaten.
