Suggested romance: Serve with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, salsa and toasted almonds. Honey and pineapple add a sweet twist to these fajitas that my family loves. I like to serve them with coleslaw and baked or fried potatoes. —Raymonde Bourgeois, Swastika, Ontario

I made this for the first time tonight. I also added the pineapple juice instead of the water. It was excellent! My husband and I loved it!

Finally got around to trying this recipe tonight! The pineapple & honey added a subtle sweet flavor. ~A nice diversion to typical fajitas. :) Excited to substitute the water with pineapple juice next time! Thanks for the idea!

My husband and I absolutely love this recipe, especially prepared with the low fat spanish rice recipe. We do substitute pineapple juice for the water to make it even more mouth watering. Pair it with low carb whole wheat tortillas to make it extra healthy!
