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


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