These tortillas are a favorite weekday meal of mine. You may add jalapeno peppers or super hot salsa in this recipe if you like your food fiery hot.

This was a great guide for my first attempt at serving fajitas. I skipped the squash swapped the monterey-jack cheese for regular tasty and served them with tex-mex beans a little chopped avocado along with the salsa and sour cream. I also did sides of mexican rice and corn on the cob but the fajitas were very filling by themselves! A great recipe for tweaking to your own tastes. Read More

This is a delicious versatile and healthy recipe that I will definitely prepare regularly. I added a portobello mushroom and some zucchini to mine. I also used a green rather than red pepper since this is what I had on hand. Read More

Fantastic! The only thing that takes a while is the chopping but otherwise this is a fantastic recipie!. We like to vary the types of salsa- our current faves are Corn and Black Bean Salsa from Williams-Sonoma or mild Paul Newman Chunky Salsa. WE also like to cook it in a large saucepan so we can double the recipie and use the veggies for Breakfast Burrito the next morning- we just scramble an egg and add veggies. Yummy! All our friends ask for this recipie after we serve it to them too! Read More

I made this for dinner the other night and even my husband (a meat and potatoes kind of guy) had seconds and said that this is something I should make again! I added some oregano and a little lime juice to the veggies. I also kept the salsa separate. Yum! Read More

This recipe was very good but I left the salsa to be put on while dinner was served. I would also add sour cream the next time I make this. Read More

Delicious! I added a can of green chiles for a bit of spice. The mixture was even good left over the day after just as a vegetable side with steak. Read More
