    the flavors were outstanding! We used Frontera Grill double roasted tomatoes and roasted onions and jalepanos salsa. Together it was delicious.

    This was very good and I will make it again. I served it with guacamole and refried beans. The only reason I didn't give it more stars is because it doesn't seem "fancy" enough for company. My whole family enjoyed it thoroughly.

    These fajitas were colorful, flavorful and very good leftovers as well. This will be a reliable fajita recipe for us.

    Recipe was delicious and tasted just like the fajitas at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I made these for a fiesta themed party, and my friends loved them, too. I substituted beef broth for the beer since I don't like to drink dark beer and didn't want to buy a six-pack. Also, I cooked the vegetables a few minutes longer than suggested because I don't like them crunchy. There is a lot of prep work though, so you do have to plan ahead for chopping and soaking in the marinade.

    Good recipe but nothing special. Good flavors but not any better than any other fajita recipe.

    Great fajitas recipe. I like that it is so tasty and much less greasy than a Mexican restaurant.

    We loved this. I have 5 little boys and they all liked it as well. I am not a beer drinker, but did buy the six pack of the dark beer recommended in the magazine. I went to the meat market and bought a ton of chicken and made a bunch of "freezer meals" of the fajitas, so the beer got all used up making that. The only thing I didn't do was use Worcestershire sauce as I didn't have any on hand. When making the fajitas for the freezer I prepared the marinade and chicken in one bag and the veggie marinade in another (minus the veggies). When I go to make the fajitas (we're on our last bag now) I pull the bag out a couple days before we're going to use it, let it thaw in fridge (while marinating) and cut up my veggies to put in the reserved marinade for an hour before cooking. Super simple summer meal that everyone loves.

    This receipe is delicious and light. I steamed the vegetables in the fry pan and they were perfect. I substituted a tblsp of teriyaki sauce for the salt. I served it with salsa and no fat sour cream. My husband and I both loved it. The preliminary work is well worth it!

    Very good fajita recipe. Used a lighter beer only because Whole Foods was out of the darker Mexican beers. This will be a go-to Mexican recipe in our house.

    Delicious, made with negro modelo beer, which turned out to be a great beer in and of itself. Used red and green bell peppers on hand and skipped the jalapeno. A recipe that I am adding to my collection!

    Amazing marinade! I used zucchini in place of peppers just because I don't like bell peppers. Wonderful chicken soft tacos!

    Absolutely loved these fajitas. My husband and two teenage boys loved them so much. They did not even realize how healthy they are. They said they could eat them every week. I will definitely make them again.

    Very good. Prepped all in the afternoon so it came together really quickly at dinner time, veg & fixins doubled to serve 8. Subbed 1lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, pounded to uniform thickness, sliced & marinated in the beer mixture. For the extra 4 portions, prepped additional 1lb boneless, skinless, pounded, sliced chicken breasts but marinated this in 1/3c orange juice, 1/6c lemon juice, 1/6c lime juice, 1/2tsp chopped garlic, 1/2tsp chopped chipotle pepper. Cooked & served the two types of chicken separately.
