One pan baked fajitas:

If you are looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal try out these one pan baked fajitas. These are loaded with flavor and you have a variety of options you could use this meal for. And they make for the perfect Cinco de Mayo meal to celebrate.

Here are some ways to use fajitas:

  • Fajita wraps
  • Tacos
  • Taco salads
  • Nachos

How to prepare:

You are going to want to add your chicken, bell peppers, onions to a baking dish. Season with your Primal Palate taco seasoning and avocado oil. If you don’t have Primal Palate taco seasoning you could use:

  1. 1/2 tsp Coriander
  2. 1 tsp Cumin
  3. 1/4 tsp Smoked paprika
  4. 1 tsp Oregano

Baking:

Once you have seasoned your chicken, cover with foil, and bake 350 for 35-40 minutes. While your fajitas are baking prepare the homemade guacamole.

Cooking in a pan:

But you can also make your fajitas in a pan if you want a quicker dinner option. I first start by sautéing my onions and bell peppers with some avocado oil, salt and pepper for 5-7 minutes. And once done, I set the veggies aside and cook my seasoned chicken for 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink.

Homemade guacamole:

When it comes to my guacamole I like to keep mine simple and fresh by using:

  1. 3-4 avocados
  2. Juice of a lime or two
  3. 1 tsp Garlic powder
  4. salt and pepper to taste
  5. 1/2 chopped cilantro

Add everything to a bowl, mix, and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

How to enjoy the fajitas:

Now once the fajitas are done you can either server over some butter lettuce for some light and refreshing taco wraps. But if you are digging some tacos grab your favorite tortillas and make some delicious tacos or burritos. And if tacos aren’t your jam, try making some nachos with Siete Foods chips.

Meal prep ahead:

What I love about this dish is that you can meal prep these ahead of time and have them all set for quick dinner options for the week. And to reheat the fajitas I either heat in a pan for a few minutes or in my convection oven.

How to store:

I like to store mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. But if you are waiting to cook the fajitas the night you plan on having, I would just add everything to your baking dish so that night you plan on having, you can just throw in the oven.
