So easy!

My 15-year-old son has made this twice and we all love it! No more fajita kits for us; the taste is excellent and the directions super easy. This has become a family favorite.

Easy and Yummy!

My 15 year old son made this recipe tonight and it was a huge hit! We followed the recipe exactly as written and the fajitas were colorful, flavorful, and just plain delicious. We will definitely use this recipe again.

I tripled this recipe to feed 12 people. I'm not very kitchen-savvy, but it came out wonderful... SO much better than those boxed fajita kits! EVERYONE loved it, even our hispanic relatives were impressed! Oh, and there were yummy leftovers for 2 days!
