EASY SHEET PAN FAJITAS
Anyone who knows me knows that Mexican food is my all-time favorite thing to eat. If eating it for dinner 6 nights a week was an option, that would be great. Throw in a pizza on the seventh night and you will have a happy woman.
One of our kids came in and told me the other night, that we are getting a new Mexican restaurant and cantina in town. So exciting. After living in San Diego for 10 years , we were used to having an abundance of Mexican restaurants nearby. Now living in Cincinnati they are few and far between.
If going out to eat at a Mexican restaurant we usually eat enchiladas and rice and beans. Along with 2 baskets of chips and salsa and 2 or 3 margaritas. As we all know ends up resulting in – 3000 or 4000 calories. Fajitas are a little healthier and so versatile, they can be used on salads, in tortillas or just on a plate. Recently we have been skipping the rice and beans and chips. Also, try to go for a skinny margarita.
This sheet pan fajita dinner recipe is made with chicken but can also be made with steak or shrimp. You could even use pork. When making sheet pan meals, everything just gets chopped up and thrown on a pan. ( Line with foil for easy clean up)Who doesn’t love this concept? Hoping to add more sheet pan meals to the site in the future. They are so easy and quick for weeknight meals. If you are looking for other quick meals that you can make when time is limited, Buffalo Chicken Tenders, and Chicken Bacon Ranch and Cheddar are also quick and easy choices.

Tips to make Sheet Pan Fajitas:
Slice your chicken and veggies about the same thickness.

Use the convection feature on your oven if you have it, it will brown the veggies nicely. Unfortunately, I’m not lucky enough to have that feature.
Line sheet pan with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
