If you’re a spice lover, my fajita subs get their zip from chili, cumin and pepper jack. The good news is; they’re not too hot for milder tastes. —Jen Haley, Sidney, NY

"My family thought these were awesome! I love how quick and easy they were to put together. I substituted 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast for pre-cooked frozen grilled chicken strips. Thishelped cut down the cook time. I also used multi grain baguette instead of one loaf French bread."

"These were good. Next time I may adjust the seasoning on the chicken, maybe add a tad more moisture."
