My husband and I had dinner with my sister and her husband last night. I mentioned my new blog and the recipes I had been trying, specifically the Goya fajita recipe that I planned to make the next day using the Goya Adobe seasoning I had received plus some Goya products I bought, such as the citrus marinade, Mojo Croillo.
My sister and I have completely opposite tastes when it comes to food. I like spicy and she like very little spice…no heat at all. However, she does like Mexican food if it is not spicy. So I told her I would try this recipe and let her know if I thought she would like it.
I am very happy to report that Goya’s Sizzling Steak Fajitas recipe on AllRecipes.com is one that can make everyone happy! It has a huge amount of flavor but not a lot of heat. The Mojo Croillo marinade adds a citrusy flavor and when combined with other spices in the marinade overnight, makes the fajita steak taste wonderful.
The recipe also calls for the Goya seasoning Sazonador Total, which I did not find. However, after viewing the ingredients online, I added garlic powder, onion powder, mexican oregano, cumin and pepper. It would not be exact but it should be close.
After trying these fajitas, I will be buying the Goya Mojo Croillo from now on. No matter if you like spicy or not, I bet you will love these fajitas.

I love fajitas and hot dishes. I was concerned when this was not as spicy, but it still had a lot of flavor without the heat. So I think you will like it. Thanks for visiting.
