OVEN ROASTED FAJITAS

June 2, 2014

Recently it surfaced that our dear family pals have a fond place in their hearts for the restaurant Chili’s. Upon hearing this, I, of course, very much wanted to go to Chili’s with them (although my normal desire for Chili’s hovers around zero). It’s sort of like when there’s a hobby you don’t understand, but it means something to your loved one so you enjoy doing it with them. That’s going to be me & Dave tonight at Chili’s with this family. And we are thrilled. Should you not be as privileged for a fine Chili’s supper with your homies, you could have these fajitas in your own kitchen.

    Have been making this recipe for a while and it’s always a winner. Any way to get nutritional info on this recipe for Oven Roasted Fajitas?

  • Charity

    I have made this recipe so many times, my in-law’s refer to this as “Charity’s Pinterest Fajitas”. Even now my husband is making them for me for dinner and I gave directions nearly from complete memory. I am quick to give you credit/forward your recipe, but I thought you would want I know that my friends & family have thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. :)

    • Rachel Schultz

      That’s lovely! Thank you Charity!

  • thank you for breaking this down so I don’t have to go there either! Just not my preference, but nice recipe! This was linked in a recent post (March) on foodie crush, so glad I found it!

  • Nina

    This is one of my favorite recipes. I always hated how mushy peppers would get in a frying pan. Now my veggies are nice and crisp!! I also throw it under the broiler for a couple of minutes to get the top charred!! YUM!!!

  • Renee

    Hi! is there any way i can make the portion smaller?

  • sarah

    These are great. They’ve become a regular for us. I love the suggested taco seasoning, and it’s become what we use for all Mexican dishes instead of having to resort to the envelope. Thank you for the great recipe!

    • Rachel Schultz

      So great!

  • Heather

    My favorite recipes are those that are easy, quick, and healthy… this one has all 3! I slice the chicken and veggies ahead of time and it takes no time at all to pop into the oven after a long day of work. I usually serve with rice & avocado.

  • Ashley

    Could you do this with steak as well? I’ve done it with chicken several times and it always tens out amazing. I was just wondering how it would be with steaks.

    • Ashley

      Also, if you have done steak, what type would you suggest?

  • Jimmy

    When you put the chicken and veggies in the oven, do you cover them?
    Thanks for your time.

  • Kathy

    I would like to print off this recipe. So, I hit “print”. Does anyone else not get any response to print request like I did?

    Thanks……………….

    PS. This really looks delish!!

  • Greg

    Looks good and will try, but print function not responding.

  • Dorothy

    In the photo it looks like you lined the pan with parchment paper. I’d definitely do that to make clean-up a snap.

  • taina

    it’s wonderfull, i’ll try it. tk.

  • Kim Todd

    Love this recipe – has become a family favorite! I do make it in a dark non stick sheet pan as I think it makes a nicer coating on the chicken and veggies – similair to what you should get in a restaurant.
    Thanks you!!

  • Lindsey

    Made these tonight – they are so good, I even made your taco seasoning. Thank you for sharing!

  • Rhonda

    Trying this tonight.. I have a family of 5 will this be enough or should I double the
    recipe? Looks awesome can’t wait!!!

  • Just wanted to say thanks for this great recipe!!

  • Lois

    Totally awesome recipe. My daughter made them for us during a recent visit and now this is what my husband wants for his birthday dinner.

  • Sharon

    This is a great easy and fast recipe. Add salsa, avacado and cheese. Serve with lime rice and beans.
    Thinking about doing a party with a tray of chicken, one of skirt lsteak and one of shrimp. Different salsas and toppings. Yum!

  • jamie

    Fantasticp… However if you are using this as a 21 day fix recipe, you will need to put far more then 2 peppers in the recipe if you want to fill a green container especially if you are planning leftovers or other people are eating with yo. You will need for like 4 or 5

  • Christine

    This was fantastic! We served with black olives, cheddar cheese abd sour cream.

  • Zooba

    Such an easy and flavorful recipe! Thank you so much for sharing! It is definitely a keeper and repeater:-) Everything was cooked through in 35 minutes.

  • FallonTerezo

    This was absolutely delicious! And as a college student I also found the ingredients for this recipe to be very affordable. My roommate and I loved this and I will definitely make it again!

  • Cassy

    Do you put the sliced chicken in raw with the veggies? Wouldn’t the veg be done in a quicker time, thus leaving the chicken undercooked? I’m thinking I might sear the chicken slices first just to be sure. Thanks for your help!!

    • Rachel Schultz

      I used raw chicken and it turned out as pictured.

  • rp

    new to your blog — we made this last night and it was awesome! 3 kids, job and not alot of time to cook. this is a keeper!

  • Hannah

    We came beck from our honeymoon on Saturday and I made these as our first meal together in our little apartment. They were soooooo delicious and easy. Thank you for sharing! Rachel-recipes are my favorite. :)

    I made this recipe yesterday (previously made your taco seasoning recipe) and modified it by adding 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms. It was delicious and so wonderful to make a meal in one casserole dish.
