Followed instructions to the letter, I don't rate this recipe, I've eaten my fair share of Fajitas and was really disappointed and a waste of chicken

Very mild. Personally I would add another 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of mild chilli powder or some cayenne.

Nice, but not quite as nice as the packets... I used about half the final mixture with 2 peppers and 2 chicken breasts for two people.
