Comments on this Recipe

Using the Mojo marinade, my wife and I made this recipe last night and were delighted. So much flavor and freshness, we didn't miss the meat! We simply sauteed the vegetables on the stove top, and as such, cut them into thin slices before marinading, rather than after. This puts more marinade on the vegetables and means you can serve right from the pan to the table or the tortillas and keep everything hot. We dispensed with the grated cheese, but used both a tomato and also a mango salsa. With the guacamole, sour cream and hot sauce, these were the best fajitas we ever had!

So good.....used brown onions and added zucchini. Put a little Cumin in the marinade as well. It was so flavorful. I will definitely make this again.
