Hands down the best fajitas i've ever had. This recipe is a keeper!
I thought this recipe was awesome (as did everyone else). I did sub blood orange olive oil for canola, lime juice for lemon, and I grilled whole boneless chicken breasts vs pan frying. I also made shrimp, which I did saute. I marinated for four to six hours. Seriously the best tasting fajitas I've ever made, maybe the best I've ever had. I didn't try the shrimp, but heard it was delicious, also.
Excellent recipe. Milder flavor with red and yellow bell peppers.
