    This is my first time ever making fajitas. The marinade for the chicken is phenomenal. I used two limes instead of one, so there was enough marinade for all three breasts to soak. I let them marinate for three hours. The chicken, peppers and onions had enough flavor, I didn't NEED other toppings. :) - 2/3/10

    These were awesome! Restaurant quality! I added 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and 1/2 tsp. oregano to the marinade. I marinated the vegetables in a seperate bag. Used ff sour cream, colby jack cheese (fine shred), and salsa as toppings. - 10/8/08

    As a former Weight Watcher Member you can cut the fat even more in this recipe by using non-stick spray for the chicken and a non-stick skillet. - 10/7/07

    These were FABULOUS! I too added some garlic to the mix. We didn't even put anything else on them - they were so good as is! - 8/23/11

    Haven't made it, but guessing that the nutrition info excludes all toppings. what about the oil that is not even listed?

    Marinade looks really good, though! - 8/12/11
