Healthy Delicious Chicken Fajitas

We are taco fanatics, in general, around here. Why wouldn’t we be?! Chicken Fajitas one of the simplest ways to please everybody, while being one of the simplest things to create.

Served with all the goods — guacamole, fresh salsa, black beans (recipe below) — and other toppings like cheese, greek yogurt, chipotles. Yeah, we are big fans.

This chicken fajita (or veg) recipe is FAST. Makes a perfect, weeknight dinner – before rushing off to dance class or basketball. You can even prep most of it in the morning and literally just cook for dinner. ALSO, getting school lunches out of it makes it more than ideal.

If Chicken Fajitas aren’t your jam that’s no problem. Just omit the meat. The veg version is equally as delicious.

Black Beans are easy-peasy. Just saute some diced onion, add garlic and chili powder and cumin. When onions are soft add beans and a little water and cook a bit longer. Mash beans if desired. Serve alone, with rice or with fajita mix.
