    I made this tonight with shrimp instead of chicken and served it on rice with salsa, guacamole, fat free sour cream and fat free cheddar cheese. It was outstanding!!! Dinner was on the table in less than 20 min. This is a definite do again.

    Love it. I found the package and bought the bulk container so I could use this recipe more than once. So delicious.

    I've made this multiple times, love the citrus and garlic combination for a different flavor for chicken fajitas! Love that you can buy the spices pre-mixed or you can mix them yourself!
