Easy Chicken Fajitas

August 16, 2018Laura

Fajitas have always been a favorite of mine and something I’m still able to enjoy on keto. They’re easy to make and is a meal that the entire family can enjoy! I serve mine with all of my favorite toppings and make my own homemade seasoning that only requires a few pantry staples. The recipe for the seasoning is included below. Hope you enjoy!


There are so many yummy topping options that you can pair with your fajitas. Here are a few that I enjoy:

  • Avocado slices
  • Guacamole
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Hot sauce
  • Lettuce
  • Shredded cheese
  • Sliced jalapenos
  • Cauliflower rice
  • Lime wedges
