Notes

🌮 To plate...scoop some fajita pan mix into a tortilla and add your favorite toppings. To make it fun, set up a little toppings station.
🌮 Make sure you're cooking with a large pan to fit all the veggies and chicken.
🌮 Spice up your fajitas! If you and your family prefer more zest, increase the amount of chili pepper used to season chicken. Or add a little bit of cayenne.
🌮 There are many possible ingredient swap options here. Chicken can be thighs, tenders or breasts. Frozen is ok too. Use 1 t of garlic powder if you don't have fresh. You can use bottled lemon juice or fresh-squeezed. Any color bell pepper is fine!
🌮 Make it gluten-free! Buy some corn tortillas or gluten-free tortillas, or just ditch the tortilla and eat the fajita mix on top of rice. Yummmmmm!
