Meals come together quickly when you use the broil feature in your oven like our simple Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas.
These fajitas can be on the table in 30 minutes or less when you prep things in advance or get the gang to help with dinner preparation. Once dinner prep is done, it’s as simple as preheating your oven, tossing items onto your baking sheet and selecting broil. In about 12 minutes you are sitting down to eat dinner.
We like to serve tacos with an array of toppings and condiments allowing everyone to choose what they like in their tacos. We are all so different it’s funny some days.
For fajitas, I don’t add cheese, but the family does. I do however like spice and add in jalapenos, pickled or freshly sliced, banana peppers, or even thinly sliced thai chili peppers. After doing this for so many years, the kids are now willing and able to try spicy peppers – sometimes!
Change up your onions by using white or yellow in stead. Roast some baby tomatoes and add a variety of peppers. Remember to cut everything the same size to ensure even cooking time.
We use flour tortillas when eating our fajitas. Warming them on our electric glass stove burner provides a little char. To do this simply turn on your burner to medium, toss one on, watch it, after a few seconds flip it with tongs and set onto a plate. Do this with all of them and keep them covered under a dish towel until ready to serve.
A second warming option is wrap them in foil, place on rimmed baking sheet and put on lower rack in oven until warmed through while your fajitas cook. Or low heat and time in your microwave.
Additional sides for fajitas, salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
