Reviews for Grilled Fajitas
"Delicious! We're impressed with this recipe and will definitely make again."
"These are so good! Will definitely make again. I followed the recipe exactly, and I used the leftover marinade to cook in with the onions and peppers as a sauce. My brother-in-law couldn't stop raving about the marinade. I served them with the lime wedges and sour cream too."
"Really, really good. I skipped the oregano."
"Love making theses"
"Delicious. Skipped the water and used extra oil. Very tasty."
"I made these for a party on the grill, they were out of this world delicious."
"I agree with all of the other reviewers.....this is wonderful!!!!!!! We will make this again and again....next time with chicken. But the beef was awesome!"
"I made skirt steak fajitas with this marinade it was outstanding this time I am doubling everything except the soup mix I am only using one pkg."
"I made this recipe this past weekend and was blown away!!! We always used a fajita package before, but never again. I did add some fresh cilantro to the marinade. Will be making this again for sure! Thanks for posting."
"What a special dinner we had last night and the best part was when my husband, who's eaten my cooking for 55 yrs., told me what a delicious dinner it was yet he grilled the steak. For a side, I made Spanish Rice with a short-cut. While prepping the pepper/onions for the Fajitas, I chopped and sauteed extras, then added to cooked rice, along with a jar of homemade salsa with black beans. I'm anxious to try this dish now with chicken.-Carol Kinelski, Richmond, Kentucky"
