fajitas Tag

The fall is typically a time where we shift into new routines.  We juggle school, work, children’s activities, and sporting events.  As a family of 5, we often find ourselves moving in different directions, but still enjoy eating together at least a couple of times a week.  This meal is full of flavor and is fast and easy, so it’s perfect for a quick, but healthy dinner.  I actually like to double the recipe so that we have leftovers throughout the week for lunches.

Sheet Pan Fajitas

1 ½ lbs boneless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
2 onions, sliced
4 peppers (green bell peppers or sweet peppers), stem/seeds removed and sliced
3 Tbsp olive or avocado oil
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt
¼ tsp ground cumin

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place sliced chicken, onions, and peppers in large bowl. Add oil and toss to coat.

  • In small bowl, mix all of the spices. Sprinkle over chicken and vegetables.  Mix well to evenly distribute.
  • Place on large baking sheet.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.

  • Serve in wraps or on top of rice. Top with homemade salsa (see recipe for End of Summer Salsa), guacamole (see recipe below), sour cream, and shredded cheese.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up a week.


4 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced + 1 tsp zest
1 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
½ jalapeno, seeds/membranes removed and finely chopped
½ medium onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium tomato, seeds removed and finely chopped
1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped (optional)

Scoop the avocado pulp into a large bowl.  Mash with a fork.  Add lime juice, lime zest, salt, and pepper.  Mix well.  In a small bowl, combine jalapeno, onion, garlic, tomatoes, and cilantro (if using).  Add to avocado mixture and fold in.  Serve with fajitas, tacos, nachos, or just with chips or veggies.
