I can't remember when or where I found this recipe, but I've used it nearly every week since. We like it with hot sauce for added spice. -Amy Trinkle of Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"This is a weeknight staple for us & I love that it only requires one dish -- fast, easy, & so yummy!

I love it so much, I shared about making my version, in a recent blog post:

"This recipe was quick and good. I enjoyed being able to just throw it together and put it in the oven when i was ready to eat! I added some zuccini fresh from my garden."

"I loved this. As another person said, there isn't QUITE as much spice as other fajita recipes, but that's what I liked about this one. I can't eat spicy food, and it was easy to dial back on the chili powder. Plus, all the other spices weren't overpowering. It felt like you could taste the peppers and tomatoes better because of this. My husband also loved it, he even licked his fingers when he was done! We will definitely be using this easy recipe again."

"I have never liked the fajitas I've made at home until I found this recipe. It's fantastic and so easy! I made my own whole wheat tortillas while it baked. [My only change was adding a sliced fresh jalepeno pepper to the mix. Yum!]"
