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

"Very easy and delicious! Great flavor! If you wanted a little less spice you could use plain diced tomatoes."

"This was easy and delicious. I had to make something quick and had most of these ingredients on hand. I had to substitute salsa for the tomatoes, but thought it did the trick."

"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."
