“Tex Mex fajitas were first made with skirt steak and eaten by ranch hands. Fajitas now include steak, chicken, shrimp, fish, and even vegetables as fillings. McCormick® Fajita Seasoning brings together a classic blend of peppers and a hint of lime that adds savory Southwestern flavor to the fajita filling of your choice”

These were good, but I agree, they needed more spice.... maybe sprinkling more seasoning on right before you serve them?

The chicken was definitely a bigger hit in my house! I used olive oil instead and added the juice of one lime to the marinade. I also used 1/2 green bell pepper and 1/2 red bell pepper for extra color. Be a little generous with the seasoning for more of a "kick" or throw in a little jalepeno. Everybody had extra helpings along with guacamole, sour cream, and always use FRESH salsa!

Thank you! This recipe is simple but wonderful! My husband and I make these several times a month. Tastes good with chicken but best with steak. We saute plenty of onions and green peppers. Let steak marinate in frig while cutting veggies and getting everything else ready. We cook steak and veggies separate, and warm fajita wrappers. Then just add sour cream and salsa. An addictive meal. We always make extra for left overs. I don't think we'll ever get tired of this one. Thanks again!
