I could eat Mexican Food every day of the week! Come to think of it, I probably DO eat some most days. And I love to share my favorite recipes with you. Seriously. And this one, well, it’s one of my favorites. I adore putting together Fast & Easy Chicken Fajitas (that just happen to be gluten-free) for my family, and they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to eat it up! LOL!
One thing I REALLY like about this recipe? Well, I like making these Fast & Easy Chicken Fajitas one night, then Quesadillas with the leftovers. Kind of makes my two evenings seem easier to have leftovers that work so easily. Like making spaghetti one night and then a spaghetti casserole the next. Only for Mexican food. Heh.
