Recipe Comments & Reviews

Really good. My whole family loved it. I will definitely make this again. Easy too.
Very delicious. The only thing I did differently was I only put in a bit of onion. My husband doesn't like "soggy" onions and peppers. I took out a bit of the juice and sauteed them on the side. We both thought these had a wonderful taste to them. I will be making these again. Thanks for the recipe!
Easy and delicious. I didn't have fajita seasoning mix, so I just added lots of chili powder, a teaspoon salt, some cumin, cracked red pepper, and a little oregano. This would be a great pot luck dish!
