Chicken & Steak fajitas recipe for a filling and delicious meal that you can dress up in multiple ways! Keto, low carb, paleo, gluten free.
I feel like everyone should know how to make fajitas. Is that just me? They’re so convenient and we would all be lying if we said we weren’t wowed a little when that hot sizzling plate comes out of the kitchen, the smells wafting about and enticing us all.
So this is a very simple, very easy fajitas recipe to add to your repertoire because obviously we’re the type of people that have fajita recipes in our repertoire.
The plate might not come out sizzling when you cook these, although I suppose it could if you wanted it to.
In other news, fajitas are awesome because they are literally tasty for anyone. Do you eat a standard diet? Great, have yours with a tortilla or rice and beans or chips or all of the above. Do you eat keto? Great, have yours with a cheese shell or cauliflower rice or over salad or just go balls to the wall and eat it right out of the pan with a fork. Do you eat paleo? Great, gobble this up with a side of cauliflower rice or some grilled vegetables.
Whatever you want, I got you. And fajitas got you too.
You can definitely sub any protein here to make it your own but I think chicken and steak are just a classic combo. You can use on or the other, both, or even add shrimp or another protein of choice.
Now we just need to get some margaritas!
