    I am only giving this recipe 4 stars b/c it didn't have as much flavor as I expected. I did substitue chicken broth for beef broth b/c I only used chicken. I didn't grill...wonder if that was the lack of flavor???

    Very good. Would definitely make again. We fixed this for our Supper Club on Mexican food nite! It got eaten up! I had such a large amount to do that I did fix the onions and peppers in my wok on the stove.

    This is really good. I've made it twice now to rave reviews - but both times I only had chicken on hand. So instead of beef broth in the marinade, I used chicken broth; and it's still a winner. I put the veggies on a cast-iron skillet on the stove - they seem too small to deal with on a grill. This will be the go-to fajita recipe in our family for years to come.

    I tried this recipe and it was extremely good. I added it to my favorites.

    Delicious!! However, I thought the chicken was more flavorful and tender than the steak. The veggies were perfectly grilled (used a grill basket) and equally delicious! A definite recipe keeper!

    My family and friends loved this recipe, marinating the veggies makes it all the better. I marinated overnight and the flavor was delicious. If you like more of a punch, my husband added hot sauce. Will make again for sure! I made with brown rice with black beans, onions and peppers as a side,

    These fajitas were awsome! The only reason that I didn't give it five stars was because I am a very very picky cook. you should definately try these. I left out the bland chili powder and added MEXICAN CHIPOLTE CHILI POWDER 2 teaspoons, and added another teaspoon after cooking the meal. I also cooked vidialla onions and red bell pepper with it. It was awsome :)

    Since this was introduced in 2000, it was our family's favorite. Simple and easy, but taste great!!!

    It's so nice to find new delicious things for dinner. Made with chicken only and chicken broth. Marinaded chicken and veggies (peppers, onions and mushrooms) then sauteed in a pan. The lime is a key ingredient, adds some great flavor! Served over rice, not in a wrap. Was delicious!

    This one is a keeper. The marinade is very flavorful.

    Love, love, love this recipe. I have made it for company a couple of times and have always gotten lots of compliments. I also make it for camping trips and it works great. I prepare the bags of chicken and veggies in the marinade, put it in the cooler and pop it on the grill at the campsite. It's awesome!

    Really good..actually, sort've perfect fajitas. I actually do it a bit different. I marinate the steak overnight, but only marinate the chicken for three hours. I find that if the chicken stays in this marinade too long, it breaks due to the marinade's high citric acid content. Also, for grilling the veggies, it's easier to cook them if they're skewered, but it's also a bit of a pain in the ass. I personally like this recipe as a good cook out for company, especially if the company are folks who like cooking and enjoy lending a hand in threading the veggies onto the skewers. Also, remember...NEVER OVERCOOK FLANK STEAK! The directions on here for 8 minute/side are rubbish; you'll have shoe leather at that point. Cook 5/side and if a bit thinner, maybe even 4/side at HIGH heat.

    I made this without the beef (because I didn't have any) and doubled the chicken. The marinade i so so good. I definitely recommend following the directions of marinating the meat for at least four hours. My husband loved this dish. I served it with saffron rice. Delicioso!

    We double the lime juice and garlic in the marinade and probably use double the cilantro as a garnish. Makes a nice display for company.

    Still our favorite recipe - we've been using this recipe for years and it is a winner. We like to use sirloin steak and chicken breasts, and stir-fry or roast the veggies. Highly recommended!

    Very good. Pretty easy too. I made half the recipe and I forgot to do the boiling of the marinade and I think that would have added some good flavor. We served with refried beans, and added sliced avocado to the tortillas.
