{Recipe} Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas

Well, it's time one of my most popular recipes gets a much needed makeover. This is a favorite dish to make during the week.  I've played around with the recipe a bit...adding in shrimp (as you'll see in the latest version) & I've made it with steak. I've made this dish countless times since the original post, it's about time I updated the pics!

I love Mexican food. Probably because most Mexican dishes involve cheese and sour cream. It should come as no surprise that Fajita's aren't my go-to dish because they aren't typically covered in melted cheese. However, when I saw the photo of this dish on Real Mom Kitchen and then read how easy it was, I was sold.   This dish was FULL of flavor and pretty healthy (minus the part where I used some light sour cream and yes, I am guilty of adding a little cheese. Just a little!)

Yeah, there is no new photo of this. Anything in a tortilla is a pain in the ass to photograph.

  2. Ordinary is your essential electric warming component like the one in the base of your full size oven.

  4. This can be effectively done by a homeowner by using a screwdriver to expel the heating components from the oven's upper and lower dividers. https://aaamiamiappliance.repair
