My kids hate onions and peppers, but they LOVE these fajitas. Pita breads, where available, can be substituted for tortillas.

I have been making these for years, I love this recipe. I use 2 green bell peppers and I sometimes use strips of sirloin (1½ lbs) instead of chicken. I use a whole carton of sliced fresh mushrooms and for extra flavor, I sometimes add a packet of fajita seasoning as well. Toppings: shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives and sour cream. This is quick, easy and there's just one pan to wash! Use precooked chicken for super easy.Read More
This fajita recipe just did not do it for my husband and I. It did not taste bad, however it taste nothing like fajitas, so if you are looking for an authetic tasting fajita I would recommend trying another recipe. I am going to stick with my usual fajita recipe and am going to post it on the site to share with others.Read More

Wonderful! 5 stars! So easy to make. My kids even loved this they are 8 and under. I left out the mushrooms because my kids dont like them. We had no left overs..my husband ate 4. I used dry italian mix recipe from this site.
This was great! I had a couple of pieces of sirloin steak(raw) and I used that instead of chicken. I cut it in strips and marinated it in a big storage bag with liquid zesty Italian dressing for a few hrs. I didn't use mushrooms because my family hates them. I used extra onions and peppers because I had more than 2 cups of meat. The liquid marinade cooked down nicely and when I added the dry dressing mix it just made the flavor POP. Everbody chowed down on these and I will definately make them again. We also had spanish rice and fat free refried beans.
I added some salsa to taste in the skillet when the chickenwas just done being cooked and just used half the amount of Italian seasoning that was suggested. It was delicious!
These make chicken wraps - not fajitas. Italian seasoning has no business in Mexican food. Scrap the seasoning packet and add cumin, onion powder and chili powder to your chicken followed by a squeeze of lime and then you will be a little closer to a fajita. These are bland.
This recipe was great. I have never had fajitas, but my roommates convinced me to try them. I usually hate peppers and was a little skeptical. The Italian seasoning really tasted great along with the chicken and veggies, I will definitely make this again!
These fajitas live by their names, they're truly fabulous! It's hard to believe something so easy to fix is so good!
The recipe was definately easy. I found it's important not to overcook the vegetables. I think the chicken tastes best marinated and cooked on the grill. I just didn't like the flavor that the italian seasoning gave it. I would try it again with a different seasoning. Two easy sides, mexican/spanish rice and refried beans.
I thought this recipe was quite tasty. I think I would shred the chicken from cold cooked chicken breast next time for the diced pieces fell out of the tortilla.
This is a great recipe, one I will definitely use again! I cut round round steak into slices and grilled it with the chicken, before adding to the mixture. That provided a char broiled flavor and appearance to the meat. Mixing the chicken and beef was fun too. My mother-in-law can't chew very well, so chicken worked well for her. The rest of us used a combination of the two meats! I also grilled a few tomatoes. I served this with "Easy Guacamole," another allrecipes submission. An excellent meal!
These were not only super delicious but SO quick & easy! I had leftover steak in the fridge, so I sliced that thin and used in place of the chicken. I added just a touch of chili powder for a bit more spice as well. I served them with cheddar cheese, sour cream & salsa. What a great recipe....this one is a keeper for sure!!!
To kick it up a notch......use a very hot cast iron skillet to "grill" red onions, red, orange and green peppers. Add dash of garlic salt, chipolte chili powder, cilantro and cumin while they cook. Substitute mushrooms with halved cherry tomatoes and sliced jalapenos. Grill marinated chicken cut into slices. Serve with salsa, cheese and sour cream.
Simple and easy, however it taste nothing like fajitas. Sub a packet of fajita seasoning not italian. That works.
This recipe is o.k. but this isn't how you'd make real fajitas. The meat should be marinated (usually lime juice is one of the ingredients). Fajitas were orignally made w/ skirt steak and needed to be marinated to be tenderized. This is really chicken with sauteed pepper/onion but misses the southwestern/mexican or tex-mex flare the italian seasoning totally didn't work for me. Bring on the Cilantro and some pico de gallo.
did not at all care for this recipe. To me, fajitas NEED fajita seasoning. Always willing to try new recipes, but for me, just didn't do it. Thank you for the recipe anyway.
I've been making this recipe all the time since i found it on here a few years ago. It immediatly became our house favorite. My husband always requests it for special occasions and it's sooo easy I don't argue. I dice the peppers and onion and don't put mushrooms because my family doesn't like them. I also add a little water to activate the dressing mix. I've let it slow cook on the stove for 30 minutes before as well. This makes the chicken really moist. We sprinkle a little cheese on top and eat it up! There's never left overs.
I spread lemon couscous - plenty of it - over the wraps first. Lovely.
Just like the restaurants serve!
I thought this would be a great quick fix, but it actually took a little longer than I expected and was not very good. The italian dressing mix just doesn't jive with the mexican theme of this recipe. Don't waste your time (or ingredients) with this one.
Yummy!! My 3.5 year old loved... super tasty even the second day!
This is a great recipe. Super easy. I didn't fangs anything. I am far from a good cook and both my husband and I will.be happy to have these again. Thanks for a great recipe!
I was attracted to this recipe because it seemed simpler than making a marinade and letting chicken/beef sit over night but I found that by cutting corners I was cutting out flavor.
We loved this recipe! I will always make my fajitas this way. To save time I used a rotisserie chicken from Publix and shredded the chicken and it tasted great! Even my 6 year old daughter loved it. Thank you.
This was my first time making fajitas. I used skirt steak in place of the chicken and I added cheddar cheese and sour cream to the recipe. Very simple and will make again. Thanks for sharing.
I made this and it turned out to be amazing. I just added a little more of the dressing mix for flavor. My family loved it as well. Great recipe
I made this last night for dinner for my husband and I after the boys went to sleep, and they were to die for!! We ate so much of it. I didn't change a thing, nor would I ever! We can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch! Thank you so much for sharing!
this was pretty good, but i think i will stick with another fajita recipe on this site(tangy chicken fajitas). i like the flavor a bit better.
everyone in my family liked this. i didn't use italian spices. i used 1 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. garlic pwd, and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper instead. mine were spicy which we all liked. thank you for a delicious recipe.
I use one each, green, red, orange and yellow bell pepper. I sautee the green with the onion first in a little olive oil with crushed garlic. The green bell and onion cook slower than the colored peppers. I then do the same with the colored peppers and add some fresh cilantro and a couple tablespoons of packaged "menudo" mix instead of the salad dressing mix. I also recommend pepper jack cheese and a fresh tomato/onion/cilantro salsa (add minced serrano chiles or jalapenos for an extra kick). February 20, 2010 - made them again, this time leaving out the green peppers. Still very yummy!
TRULY FABULOUS!! I thought it could use more seasoning. My husband thought there was plenty of seasoning. ??? Either way...extremely good recipe!
I was in a pinch to make beef fajitas, not realizing I didn't have my usual mix on hand. Forget the mix! The salad dressing did the trick and it was quite tasty.
This recipe was very tasty. I enjoyed it very much. I added hot sauce to my fajita when it was done. YUMMY
no leftovers in the house!, this recipe is good
I'm giving this a five star rating because my Fiance LOVED these fajitas. I grilled the chicken on my G.Foreman grill and cut the chicken in long pieces fajita style. I also added a jalepeno.
They were ok, not the best. I followed the recipe exactly.
This recipe is way better than using the dry fajita seasoning... My husband loves them!!! i also add garlic, tony's creole seasoning, and red pepper flakes...making tonight for supper as a matter of fact!
This recipe was fast and simple. It tasted a little bland at first so I added 1 packet of Sazon (Seasoning made by Goya). This helped to kick it up a notch. I love that it has mushrooms in the fajitas which you don't find in many fajita recipes. All together it was different and had great texture.
Very tasty - I've made it so often I've fiddled with the recipe to make it to my exact tastes. I like spice, so I tossed in a teaspoon of red chili flakes and some garlic powder and nixed the seasoning mix. I've also started to grill them - I lay out the taco shell flat, spread a bit of grated low fat cheddar, then the filling, a bit more cheese and another taco chell. I pan fried them or cook them on an electric grill until the shells are crispy on both sides, cut into 6 wedges and serve with salsa and fat free sour cream...an absolute favorite of mine.
This was a great quick recipe! I will use it again.
I absolutely loved this recipe. I did not change a thing and it turned out just wonderful!Added a little salsa and big dollop of sour cream-yum!Will make this one over and over
great recipe! my boyfriend gave it a ten!
Everyone loved this here including my 4 year old. I did make some changes though - no mushrooms & used sliced round steak instead of the chicken. I also added a tiny bit of Montreal Steak Seasoning to spice it up a bit. Quick & easy to make. Highly recommend!
These were outstanding. I didn't change a thing except for the fact that I tossed in some olive oil when I added the Italian seasoning. I thought it needed something so it wouldn't be dry. I'll be making these often!
Great fajita recipe. I've used steak but prefer the chicken. I always add cheese and serve with sour cream and diced tomatoes. Yummmm!
I was excited to try this after reading some reviews...but was really disappointed. If you're going to go to the trouble of slicing up the onions and peppers and cooking it all up for fajitas and then just add a packet of dry something or other, it is WORTH IT TO ADD THE FAJITA MIX INSTEAD! Maybe I'm a fajita-snob but this is pretty boring and certainly no easier than adding a dry packet of fajita mix.
These tasted better than I expected after adding little shredded cheddar. My husband liked them. This is a very easy recipe and much of it can be prepared ahead of time.
I was a little skeptical about how this would turn out - but it was fantastic! I only used 1 green pepper since my fiance doesn't really like them. So delicious - serve with shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream - the works!
my husband being a VERY picky eater loved this recipe as i did myself. we love mexican food. this was a delicious recipe. i would have never thought of using the italian seasoning to flavor. it is a great taste! i put this on a pita instead of tortillas and top with my favorite cheese and taco fixins!
These were great. I did not have cooked chicken... so, I marinated in Lawrys Baja Chipolte and cooked on a griddle. I served with gaucamole and salsa. Would make again - though I want to add pineapple next time.
I made this recipe too the tee and it was delicious. I also made guacamole on the side and it went great with these fajitas.
Very easy and very good!
We loved this recipe! My children love fajitas and my 13 yr old son said it tasted just like the fajitas we get at a local Mexican resurant that is one of his favorites! I was surprised by how well the dry mix worked. It needs a squeeze of lime right before serving....Will absoluley make this easy, quick recipe again!
This is absolutely delicious. I enhanced them by topping the filled tortilla with olives, fresh cilantro and sour cream. Everyone I've served them to has raved.
These were really great. I marinated the chicken in the italian seasoning mixed with a little oil and then poured it on the veggies when they were sauteed to finish cooking. It was very good and a great alternative to going out to eat:)
Nothing is easier than fajitas on a warm summer night. Topped with cilantro, cheese and sour cream.
Even my picky kids loved this without even taking it apart!
This was the easiest fajita recipe. In twenty minutes I had dinner on the table. I was running low on flour tortillas so I ate mine in a bowl topped with lettuce, tomato and a small sprinkle of low fat cheese. I'll be making this one on a regular basis.
better without italian dressing, or only 1/2 package
Added some slices of jalapeno and topped with mozarella cheese. Just Great with Flour tortillas and good for next day work lunch.
Simple recipe for a quick dinner. The ranch dressing added a great flavor. Served with spanish rice. It was perfect with sour cream, shredded cheese & tomatoes. Next time, we will add some sliced avacado
it tasted really good, even if not traditional mexican flavor. but, that is obvious with no mexican spices in the recipe. i put it all in a veggie roasting skillet on the grill, and grilled them. that's what made it taste so good. then the usual fajita toppings. it'll make great scrambled egg addition in the morning also.
Best Fajitas I've ever eaten!!!
My whole family loved this recipe, especially my brothers, they even asked by mother to make it the next day. i sure do recommend!!!
Well I revised A LOT. Thanks for the recipe. I never would have used italian seasoning in a Fajitas recipe, because that's not mexican but the flavor was great. However, I would Never, Ever, use cooked meat in ANY recipe no matter how much I was trying to cut back on time. Just can't do it. So I used both chicken and flank steak and tons more seasonings (italian) and sour cream and homeade tortillas and everyone loved it. Good it was, Fajitas, it was not. Oh and used yellow, red and green peppers and chopped seasonal tomatoes along with the shrooms. Oh, and par grilled both the meats before adding them into the mix.
This has become a regular around our house. Fantastic and fast! I do change a few things. 2 green peppers is overkill, so I only use 1. I also double the mushrooms and add sour cream and baby spinach as toppings. Yummy stuff! The italian dressing mix is a great trick!
Very good fajitas. The dressing mix spices it up and adds a nice flavour.
we werent a fan of these at all...
Yummy!! This is our new fajita recipe in our household and we have it often! I was so nervous about the Italian dressing mix, but what an excellent addition!!! I make this almost as is, except I exclude the mushroom, instead of two green peppers I use one and use either an extra red or a yellow pepper instead, and add a package of fajita seasoning. Mmmmm! Absolutely delicious! One time I didn't have fajita seasoning and prefer to add it, but I did have taco seasoning, so I used that instead. That was just as great!! Overall, definitely worth trying and don't be afraid of the Italian dressing mix, it's a great addition! Serve with the usual toppings and Mexican rice.
FABULOUS is the word! We just finished eating these tonight and my family couldn't get enough! By far the best fajitas we've ever had!
I did not care for this recipe.
After a long day at work, I decided to cook this quick meal. My family loved it. It was easy, quick and delicious.
Great way to use chicken leftover from making soup.
Diabetic friendly! My new standing recipe for fajitas, chicken or beef. There are two pluses in preparing this recipe that make it a breeze for me. One, even without marinating the meat, it has great flavor. Two, I keep the dry seasoning mix on hand to make these quickly. I made my own dry mix using "Italian Dressing Mix" (recipe by Debby), cutting the sugar to 1tsp, and use about 3tsp. of this mix in making the fajitas. Use lower carb tortillas to keep the carbs down even further. Add a little sour cream and these are fantastic!!!
Family loved these. I did add a fresh jalepeno with the peppers and onions. And I added a dash of Mojito Lime seasoning. Was surprised at the italian seasoning actually tasting good.
Excellent!!! I used left over roasted chicken, a homemade dressing mix (cause I live too far to go buy one), and I made my own corn tortillas. But the recipe for the chicken was superb. My picky 5 year old said it was the best dinner ever. No kidding, these are his own words; granted he only ate the meat, tortilla, and cheese, but still excellent. Oh, and I used shitake mushrooms instead of buttons. Thanks for sharing this one.
This was really tasty and easy. I really liked the flavor the Italian salad dressing seasoning gave the veggies and the meat. I will make this again.
This is a great recipe for fajitas - very popular in my home. The dry-Italian style dressing really makes this good - so don't substitute.
Very quick and healthy option for dinner. Some prep time is needed for cutting the peppers but my whole family loved it.
Great base! I was worried they wouldn't have enough flavor so i added A LOT of spices. With the chicken: a dash of cayenne pepper, Nature's Seasoning, Seasoned Salt, Garlic Powder, and Italian seasoning. I then pan fried strips of chicken breast in about 2 tablespoons oil. I HATE green peppers, so I omitted them, In a separate pan, I sauteed red pepper, onion, and the mushrooms (I like my mushrooms COOKED through completely), and added garlic powder, taco seasoning, cayenne pepper, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. After frying both pans, I put them together and then rolled them in whole wheat tortillas. Husband said they are in his top 3 of all recipes I've made!!
These fajitas are to die for. Your mouth will begin to water while cooking them, it was even hard for me to wait. My family and friends loved them. I was a little nervous about the italian seasoning, but stuck to the recipe, and I am very glad I did. If you try to substitute with the "fajita" seasoning it will NOT be the same and do it no justice.
This was fantastic!! Very easy recipe and Oh so yummy. I made it in about 25 minutes. Try this one and like me you will add it to your permenate recipe box. PS cant say enough, it was great!!
It's easy and so good. Everyone Loved it and even though I am just learning how to cook it was easy for anyone to make. Doesn't take much time at all for those busy people.
The kids really liked this recipe as did my wife. I found it a little bland - though nothing that Tabasco on my fajita couldn't cure.
I didnt care for these fajitas. They were very easy to make but I was definitely disappointed seeing as this is a 5 star recipe. I will not make these again. I served it w/ Spanish Rice Bake.
Yum! I am not much of a fajita person but my fiance loves them so I gave them a try and they were far better than expected. He kept mentioning that the veggies were so "savory". I will be making these again!
Delish! These were to DIE for!!! My hubs liked these SO much, he asked if we were having fajitas again tonight lol. :) I wasn't expecting these to be as tasty as they were, but was pleasantly surprised. Admittedly, the only reason I considered this recipe to begin with was because it called for ingredients I already had available (well, mostly...). Because I had a package of red, yellow & orange bell peppers handy, I used those instead of a red / green one. My hubs and I don't care for mushrooms so I left those out altogether. My final change was to marinate my chicken breasts in zesty Italian dressing FIRST (again, in an attempt to use up some odds and ends), then grill them, slice and add to my bell pepper / onion mixture to heat thru (with the dry Italian dressing mix). Mexican rice, my hubs' AWESOME homemade guacamole and beer margaritas completed our meal. Shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese, salsa and sour cream were perfect fajita toppers. I can't WAIT to try this recipe with other cuts of meat! Thanks SO much for sharing this AWESOME recipe with the AR community, APIED. I will be making this again VERY soon! :-)
I thought these were very yummy and very fast. Who would have thought!?!! Great little recipe! I left out the green pepper because I"m not a green pepper fan!
this was a really great recipe. the only thing i added was a little ground red pepper for some heat. try using different meats like leftover turkey. it works really well. salsa and sour cream are the perfect condiments.
I wasn't so sure about the salad dressing mix but I was impressed with the results. Very tasty.
This was super easy and tasted great! Next time i'm going to try shrimp.
This was delicious! I wasn't so sure about using the Italian dressing as a seasoning but it turned out great and had tons of flavor. I cooked the chicken in a packet of taco seasoning before adding the veggies and then we made ours into quesidillas to make them easier for the kids to eat, we had no leftovers. I will make this all the time now.
My husband really likes this dish and it is a super easy way to make fajitas. But I have to agree the Italian seasoning, while tasty, is not very authentic for fajitas! However, we make it on a regular basis when in a time crunch.
These truly were FABULOUS! Will have again and again when we have Fajitas! :)
I have made fajitas many times before using far more complicated recipes, but never as good as these!!
These are very easy and tasty. We used leftover turkey from the holidays.
My dad actually THANKED ME for making this!! =D He's been worried about what he's been eating, an really I've just been a bit anxious about everyone in the house' diets so this was a GREAT, easy, quick meal. Def. making agian!! I used a homemade italian dressing mix, yellow pepper, an didn't have fresh onions to slice so subbed the diced dried stuff. Really, super superb. Thanks for posting!!! ♥
I love Mexican food, but my hubby doesn't like the traditional Mexican spices. This recipe was a nice compromise! (I just topped mine with salsa.) My peppers took a long time to cook down, but it was worth it!
