Reviews for Tasty Chicken Fajitas
"Very good, but next time I need to use mild salsa for the kids. I marinated it for 4 hours, used 1 1/2 pounds of chicken, doubled the marinade, and added 1/2 an orange pepper."
"These fajitas are fantastic! I have fixed them quite a few times now, and there are never any leftovers!"
