    Made the recipe as is and marinated for 2 hours. This was lacking in seasoning for us. Will make the recipe again, but will double the amount of the dry seasonings and I think it will be perfect for our tastes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!  -  06 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    used 2 packages of chicken tenderloins cut in half lengthwise, doubled the spices but not the oil for the marinade. Used 2 peppers and one large red onion  -  02 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a great recipe, however I did make some minor changes. I used olive oil in place of what was suggested, used 1 packet of Taco Bell original taco seasoning and 1 packet of Taco Bell mild seasoning in place of the spices suggested, added about a teaspoonful of minced garlic, cayenne pepper, oregano, onion powder w/parsley and concentrated lemon juice to the marinade mixture and served with taco rice and re fried beans. The hubby and I loved it and will be adding it to our weekly recipes. Thank you for a great recipe! Kept in fridge for about 1. 5 hours before cooking.  -  04 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
