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 (1 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

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More
