I think this could use a much longer marinating time. Not enough seasoning for me.

Good! I wasnt sure how I would like the pineapple but it added a nice tropical flavor to the fajitas. I realized at home I had forgot to buy fajita seasoning, so I just used taco seasoning ~ it turned out fine. We omited the avocados but made fresh guacamole to go with and also served w/ a pineapple & mango chipotle salsa. Very yummy!
