Everyone I’ve ever made these fajitas for (and this a go to recipe for guests) absolutely love these fajitas! The trick? You don’t use pre-made fajita mix packets. Instead, you use a combination of fresh and healthy ingredients to season the fajitas. You use this Fajita seasoning recipe to cook off the peppers, onion, and chicken or beef in. The result? An extremely delicious fajita that blows the pre-made mixed fajitas away!
First, cut chicken, red, green, and orange or yellow pepper, and yellow onion into strips.
Next, add them to a deep dish pan with the seasoning ingredients. Cook on medium heat. Stir often. Cook until the chicken is white throughout and the marinade, has cooked almost completely off. (There will be a little bit of a sauce in the pan but for the most part the marinade cooks off.)
