Delicious Chicken Fajitas, so quick and easy to make and perfect for a mid-family week meal. Serve with tortilla wraps or lettuce wraps for a healthier option.
You can’t beat fajitas for a quick and easy mid-week meal. They’re so simple to make, with just a few basic ingredients for the fajita filling and then topped with whatever toppings you fancy!
You can buy fajita spice mix in most supermarkets but its honestly so cheap and so easy to make your own at home. My recipe has just four ingredients:
- Ground Cumin
- Mild Chilli Powder
- Smoked Paprika
- Garlic Powder
You can make the spice mix fresh each time of make up a big jar of it and add 2.5 tsp each time you can these fajitas.
I usually serve the kids’ fajitas in mini tortilla wraps and for my own portion I serve them in little gem lettuce leaves.
Toppings are optional but you really can’t beat a little sour cream and grated cheese at a minimum!
