I love fajitas! What I don’t love is having to stand over a hot grill when it is 100 degrees outside to cook the fajitas. This delicious Oven Baked Fajita recipe is perfect for those days when it’s too hot, too rainy or too cold to grill!
I saw something about baked fajitas recently and the idea stuck with me. After googling “fajitas in the oven” and found that everyone was pretty much using the same recipe, I figured the fajitas must be good.
I had 5 pounds of chicken breasts in the freezer and decided to cook it all up as fajitas and portion the meat to freeze for future dinners.
The fajitas were fabulous and really very easy! My 7-year-old complimented the meal more than once and that says a lot…
I definitely recommend you try baking your fajita meat in the oven!
