Super Simple Fajitas

Updated: Jan 5

Tonight is a rest night from working out so I decided to actually make dinner! Fajitas has to be one of our favorite meals for quick dinner at home. I'd say when I'm cooking once or twice a week (I go through phases) we have it at least once a month. This recipe makes enough for Keith and I to have at least two meals each, so usually two dinners.


Still, you know your girl loves a quick and easy meal! This is maybe 10 minutes of prep (unless you buy pre-cut veggies!) and bakes for 20 minutes. The ingredient list is short and healthy! You know it's easy or I wouldn't be making it!



Ingredients:

3 - Bell Peppers (I prefer colorful)

1 - White Onion (I do not love red onions, but you could use red!)

1 - 6-8 pack fresh Chicken Tenderloins (I freeze mine and thaw before prepping)

1 - McCormick Fajita Seasoning Packet

1 - McCormick Hot Taco Seasoning Packet

Olive Oil (I don't measure it; probably a few tbsp)

Whole wheat tortillas


My Topping Preferences:

Cheese

Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt (sour cream replacement)

Salsa

Cilantro (You know I buy it in a shaker)

Fresh Lime Juice (I forgot the limes tonight...bummer summer)



Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 415

  • Cut up bell peppers and onion and spread onto a sheet pan

  • Drizzle olive oil over and the entire packet of fajita seasoning

  • Mix thoroughly (I use my hand)

  • Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl

  • Drizzle olive oil over and the entire packet of taco seasoning

  • Mix thoroughly (I use my hand)

  • Spread chicken onto the pan with the veggies

  • Bake for 20 minutes


I usually have two tortillas with about 3oz chicken split between them and as many veggies as I want. I measure out 1/4 cup shredded cheese or just add a sprinkle to each one (this has taken a lot of work because I LOVE cheese). I add a tbsp of greek yogurt to each and however much salsa and lime juice I want. Using plain non-fat greek yogurt as a sour cream replacement is one of my favorite things. It's high protein and adds no fat to your meal.


Nutrition approximately:

600 calories: 50g carbs, 28g fat, 40g protein


This is perfect for me for dinner. If I were having it for lunch, I'd probably just have one which cuts the calories and macros in half.

I hope you've enjoyed this quick, easy and healthy recipe!
