Oven Baked Fajitas

Oven Baked Fajitas - A healthy, sizzling Fajita recipe with just the right amount of heat! Top with sour cream and serve with a side of rice. huddlenet.com #recipes #Mexican #DinnerAs much as I love Mexican food, Fajitas are not something I eat. Peppers, onions, tomatoes – these are on my Top 10 of Yucky Foods! This did not stop me from coming up with a recipe that my hubby enjoys.

After trying a few, I mashed together this one. The hubby snarfed up the meal. Next time I need to use Mild Ro-Tel Tomatoesinstead of Original! His mouth was on fire.

When you make your fajitas, be sure to pick the flavor of Ro-Tel that you enjoy. Ro-Tel is available in Original, Mild, Hot, Chunky, Mexican and Chili Fixin’s style. If you do not enjoy spicy food, you can use a can of plain diced tomatoes.

Although I chose chicken for the meat in this recipe, you could choose one pound of strip steak, pork or shrimp. Remember to follow cooking guidelines for any meat that you choose.

Top your fajitas with sour cream, guacamole or salsa. Serve with a side of rice for a complete meal. I will get my rice recipe on here soon!
