MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2012

"These are very tasty fajitas! I didn't use the whole 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, mainly because soy sauce is really high in sodium, even the reduced sodium... so I did 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and about 1 of Hoisin sauce. And a sprinkled chili powder on both the veggies and the beef. Oh, and I just used some sour cream and cheese instead of a coleslaw mix.

The flavors of the spices in this are really well balanced and taste wonderful with the onion and peppers! Definitely making this again!"
