"I have made this recipe many times. We love it so much that we eat it about once every two weeks. It's worth all the chopping to taste something this fresh and delicious. It makes my husband like eating his veggies, which is a rare thing indeed."
"This was pretty easy to make and very good. My husband enjoyed it too!"
"Pineapple? Brown sugar? NEVER in fajitas!"
"I've been making this recipe for a few years. To make it even faster, I use canned pineapple chunks. Also, instead of frying the tortillas, we actually roll it up in tortillas. Its a little saucy, but so good!"
"I agree--pineapple and soy sauce don't belong. The real trick in getting true fajita taste is to add 1/2 teaspoon of ground chipolte chile. It ads a nice "smokey" flavor. Spice Islands makes it and can be found in local grocery stores. I mix my own fajita mix and keep it handy because it's a fast dinner and can be made with chicken, beef or just black beans."
