    The flavor was good; the spices smelled a lot stronger then they tasted. I do not like lettuce, but the butter lettuce did give a nice crunch with the chicken fajitas. Also roasted some broccoli with a little olive oil and sea salt for some added veggies. I split the recipe in half and made half the mixture fresh and stored the other half in the fridge to marinate overnight. The half I made equalled about two servings.

    You just gave me a great idea! I have some thin beef cutlets that I didn’t know what to make – they will be perfect for beef fajitas! :)

    Made these tonight and it turned out great. I cut the recipe by 1/3 and substituted one lime for a lemon. I had to drain some of the liquid since I like the fajitas to brown a bit. Made some Paleo tortillas, topped with avocado and tomatoes. Delicious! Even my kids devoured it!

    Is it 2tbsp of *each* spice, or 2tbsp total? 2 tbsp of each sounds a wee bit excessive.
