4. Crispy Chicken Fajita Wrap

Fajitas are definitely one of my favorite types of Mexican food, and food in general. The best sound in the world is the sizzling meat and vegetables as they come to your table. I haven’t been able to quite duplicate that level of sizzle at home, but as long as I get the flavors, that’s good enough for me. I’m not good at self control when there’s a pile of fajitas in front of me. And let’s face it, fajitas can sometimes be messy. So I created a Crispy Chicken Fajita Wrap.

Just slice up all your veggies (keeping them uniform in size and thickness will help them cook evenly), toss them with oil and fajita seasoning, then throw onto a sizzling hot pan and let them get all caramelized and smoky.

6. Chipotle Portobello Oven Fajitas

I got that craving for oven fajitas the other day and just had to have ’em. I decided to switch things up a bit this time and use portobello caps in place of the chicken, and add a little smoky chipotle powder to the spice mix.

7. Friday Night Fajita Platter

I love serving fajitas in this way – cook everything up and then throw it on one huge platter so that everyone can dig in and help themselves. It’s also a great way to get a few veggies in (even though it feels more like fast food!)

It’s a great idea to make extra and save some for a fajita salad bowl the next day. A drizzle of sour cream and a few salad leaves and you’l have a lunch to make your colleagues jealous!

8. Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

The onions and bell pepper are sliced very thin so that they cook at the same rate at the shrimp and everything is cooked on just one sheet pan. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and chopped cilantro for a dinner that is packed with flavor and veggies!

10. Weight Watchers Friendly Fajita Veggies

13 Fantastic Fajita Recipes: Authentic Mexican Food

My favorite secret to make these fajita veggies look a little more like a fancy restaurant? I use the mini bell peppers that come in the bag so the strips are smaller and sized more similarly to the red onion slices. This also allows for a faster cook time.

Yes, the mini bell peppers are going to be marginally more work to prep and slightly more expensive, but if you’re hosting a dinner these fajita veggies will look and taste fantastic served alongside them.
