This was a really tasty fajita recipe. I made a few changes. I didn't have any lemon juice on hand because I forgot to look before I went to the store. So I substituted lime juice instead. It gave it a nice zesty, citrus flavor that really made these excellent. I also added a sweet red bell pepper sliced along with the green onions. I would definitely make this again.
