Reviews for Fabulous Fajitas
"We love Mexican food so this recipe satisfies our craving!!"
"Good basic recipe, but a little bland- I add a couple of different chili powders, ancho, chipotle- lots more garlic. Cannot eat green peppers, use yellow, red or orange. Lime juice instead of lemon. A touch of honey. Cook on low, 6-8 hours. I use the lime at the end, before serving."
"this was very good, but I would probably add a little more seasoning the next time. I will make this again."
"I'm surprised I didn't submit a review on this recipe earlier (shame on me)! This recipe is truly FABULOUS! This is my go-to recipe for fajitas; not only do I use steak, but I also use chicken and I'll double the recipe so one night we have fajitas, the next night I'll make quesadillas with either the chicken or steak. This is such a keeper!!"
"I also prepare this recipe by marinating chicken in the seasonings, then cooking it on individual fajita skillets"
"This was great. The meat was so tender! easy to make too. I doubled the recipe to serve 7 people."
"I used half of the recipe and put it in my 1.5 qt slow cooker and it was perfect for the two of us. I used lime instead of lemon, but I couldn't detect any lime flavor. I would have been better off using the lemon during cooking and adding a squeeze of lime at the end."
