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.
Easy to make - the pineapple was delicious!
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!
