    Terrific flavors and bright colors. Used under-ripe mango & corn tortillas instead of flour. Served with the recommended chunky guacamole. Also made the simple black beans from CL's Flank Steak with Mojo Relish.

    What an easy, flavorful meal. Next time I will try it with mangoes, just trying to keep the carb level down. I was amazed at how flavorful the meat was with such a short marinating time. I couldn't find ancho or chipotle chile powder, so I substituted chili powder. This meal took 30 minutes to make and only one skillet. I think that this could benefit with a corn and black bean salsa, but overall a solid recipe.

    Excellent, quick meal and surprisingly warming on a cold night. The only thing I didn't like was that the recommended jarred mango got a little mushy. Next time I'll use either fresh or frozen. I used a well-trimmed, single ribeye steak, perfect for 3 people to have 2 fajitas each. I also found a great fat-free tortilla: La Banderita (Ole Mexican Foods). It was so soft and tender out of the pkg, not at all like usual FF ones. Served w/ CL's Zesty Three Bean & Roasted Corn Salad. Yum.

    This is easy, fast and very tasty. My kids (age 2, 5 and 7) love it - it's become a regular everyday meal at our house. We've used sirloin and NY strip instead of tenderloin, and have used lemon instead of lime, skipped the cilantro (when none in the fridge) and it's always good even with some substitutions. We serve it with white or brown rice and pureed black bean dip w/ tortilla chips.

    i used a homemade chili powder for the beef and lemon juice instead of lime. The dish tasted well, quick and easy. Cooking was basic so it is easy for any level of cook. i like the fresh mango with the onions and peppers. added some hot sauce for a little zip.
