Chicken Fajitas in a Flash

Toss your favorite protein, vegetables, and spices together on a sheet pan and broil for fast-fix chicken fajitas that practically prepare themselves. The base fajita seasoning would be a stellar meat marinade any night of the week.

Fall Vegetable Fajitas

Try our freeze-then-slice trick for the most tender steak fajitas ever. Grilled with peppers, onions, and zucchini, this beef dinner is low-calorie and satisfying all at once.

Fajita-Style Quesadillas

It's a Mexican mashup! Stuff fajita flavors inside two cheese-loaded tortillas for a crowd-pleasing appetizer for eight (or meal for two).

Shredded Beef, Bean, and Corn Fajitas

Cool off slow-cooked shredded beef pot roast with a crunchy cucumber-jicama salsa.
