There are only a few things more satisfying than juicy chicken, crisp bell peppers and onions wrapped in a warm tortilla. Actually, I can’t think of a more gratifying dinner than Baked Chicken Fajitas. Okay… I’m lying again. When it comes to Mexican food, I’ve got a few pleasurable, hit-the-spot dishes such as my Baked Burritos and Chicken Tortilla Soup. I’m just still licking my lips from finishing these oven baked fajitas and think you’ll fall in love with them quickly too.
Have you tried uncooked tortillas yet? You can find them in the refrigerated section next to cheese and eggs in the grocery store. I purchase mine through Amazon or Costco in bulk. I keep one package in the refrigerator and the other in the freezer. When I need the frozen one to thaw, I just place in the fridge for 24 hours or on the counter for 2 hours. You cook them for about 20 to 30 seconds on each side and they’re ready! Also, I love how TortillaLand keeps their ingredients simple and natural. No preservatives, no cholesterol, no saturated fat (especially no lard), and just basic ingredients needed to make tortillas. You’ll never want regular tortillas again after having these.
This recipe confirms healthy eating is enjoyable, full of flavor, and leaves your mouth and stomach very pleased. I have lots more tips and suggestions for you right here.
