"Though a very popular meal in this country, few Americans know the origins of the word fajita. These easy-to-make dinners were originally made with skirt steak, a cut of meat that looks just like a belt, or a fajo. This beef version is the classic, but fajitas are also delicious made with chicken, seafood, or vegetables." — Ortega®

My husband and I loved these! I love spicy foods but my husband doesn't. This fajita recipe was the perfect compromise. I was able to make them non spicy for my husband and just added a little more spice for me.They were a real simple last minute idea for dinner!!!
If you like a tomato flavor with your fajitas, then this is the recipe for you. Not the traditional "grilled" flavor you get in most restaurants.
The flavor was good but that was about all. It was not possible to good the meat in the all the other items without making the onions and peppers soggy as they essentially boiled in all that liquid. A better idea would be to remove the meat from the marinade and cook it separate, then add it to the pepper/onion mixture. We will not be making this again, sad to say.
instead of using salsa, i used bout 4 oz. of taco sauce. and i also added in some red pepper. i believe it was absolutely perfect and my friends luved it. we ran out of meat b4 tortillas!!! try with some homemade guacamole - its the best. and try using skirt steak.
My family did not care for this recipe at all. I would not use salsa for this recipe. It really tasted terrible. I am going to delete this recipe from my box.
This recipe was excellent! Everyone loved it and wanted more. Just the right spicyness! Definitely a regular at our house. I recommend trying chicken, linguica and or shrimp too!
This is a great way to s-t-r-e-t-c-h a pound of steak, and the salsa marinade makes it very tender. It made enough for 8 large fajitas, with filling left over for about 2 more.
