It’s Chicken Fajitas for dinner tonight!
It’s official, school is in full swing. I started high school this past Wednesday. That means I’ll be getting home late and the endless homework will begin. As the school year starts, there really is no time to make fancy dinners that take along time. I came up with a bunch of easy, quick recipes that will appeal to the whole family.
These chicken fajitas are exactly that! They are a quick, “one pan” meal. They have nice spicy flare from the poblanos and chili powder. If you are like me, and you love the heat, you can add in as much of it as you’d like. But if you have little kids or you just don’t like spicy food you can totally substitute the poblanos for green peppers or just leave out the chili powder. It is a really versatile recipe. You can add in whatever you’ve got in the pantry or fridge. For example mushrooms would be super yummy in this! Enjoy!
