Expert Tips

  • Bell peppers come in a rainbow of colors, and you can use whichever you like in this recipe. Keep in mind that red, orange, yellow and other colors are often sweeter than green bell peppers, which are less ripe.
  • This also tastes great with a squeeze of lime juice over the baked chicken and veggies!
  • The word “fajita” is the diminutive form of the Spanish “faja,” which means “strip” or “belt.” So, “fajitas” literally means “little strips.”
  • Skirt steak was the original meat used for fajitas, but the preparation pairs well with so many kinds of meat that you can use just about anything—and chicken is an enormously popular option.
  • Fajitas are almost infinitely customizable. Set out a spread of toppings and finishes like sour cream, salsa, guacamole, limes, herbs, sliced jalapeños and more to let each person make their perfect fajita combo.
