Nutrition Facts & Tips

Variations

Feel free to replace chicken with different protein e.g. tofu for a vegetarian version. Or go with a lean beef cut stripes or turkey breast.

Fajitas go perfect with a chunky tomato salsa. I also use Light Greek yogurt in place of a heavy cream.

You can also exchange the bigger tortillas with smaller ones to control the portion size.
