Contest-Winning Chicken Fajitas Recipe

I was born and raised on a farm in Iowa but have been a California resident for many years. Southwestern-style recipes like these chicken fajitas soon became family favorites. I like to serve them with salsa and guacamole.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 10 min. YIELD:12 servings

  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

"Very flavorful!!! I cut the recipe in half since there are only two of us. The lime and the cumin really make this recipe. I added an extra squeeze of lime juice to the vegetables before serving."
