Chicken Fajitas

There is something about the smell and sound of sizzling fajitas. My house loves tacos, quesadillas and fajitas so I try to make one of those three at least once a week. They’re quick and that means perfect for a weeknight dinner!

I think cooking it all in a cast iron skillet is the best way because it gets that delicious gritty flavor, browns nicely and just sautés beautifully.

So are you curious about the super quick way I make fajitas that the whole family will eat? Welp, keep scrolling!
