Directions

Mealthy Tip

Cook chicken with sliced Spanish chorizo to add a burst of smokey-spicy flavor! Alternatively, make steak fajitas: Sear two 1-pound steaks in the skillet with peppers and onions moved to the edge for 5 to 6 minutes per side. Let rest for 10 minutes, then thinly slice.

Before this recipe I had no idea how easily I could make fajitas at home. I used canola oil rather than grapeseed oil, and that worked great. Crowd favorite!

Sam Dalton says:

These chicken fajitas were really good. I made them in our cast iron skillet. They taste good without or without cheese and go perfectly with a side of tortillas.

This recipe didn't have any seasoning, but I added paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, and oregano. I also used two peppers instead of one. It was pretty good, just wish that this recipe would have included more flavor.

I cooked the chicken with sliced Spanish chorizo, like the recipe suggested! I thought it was really good. I served it with flour tortillas. Next time I'll try steak.

Made steak fajitas with peppers and onions. Skipped the cheese, and just served as is. My wife likes to wrap it up in flour tortillas. It's one of our favorite weeknight dinners.
