    I have made this recipe twice so far and EVERYBODY has LOVED it! I only made a couple alterations - I blended my own Caribbean Jerk seasoning, substituted olive oil for vegetable oil and added more pineapple. This is a WONDERFUL recipe. Thanks so much for sharing it!  -  29 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Quite good! Fed 4 people for around 20$ (with left overs).  -  30 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make fajitas all of the time but have never thought of adding pineapple, tasty! I used up some garden fresh jalapenos and poblanos. Used my own spicy seasoning. I really, really liked adding the pineapple to mine.  -  15 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
