An Easy and Flavorful Chicken Fajitas perfect for a quick weeknight meal

Fajita

A fajita, in Tex-Mex cuisine, is any stripped grilled meat with stripped peppers and onions that are usually served on a flour or corn tortilla. The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish.
