Chicken Fajitas with Spiralized Vegetables

These chicken fajitas are easier to make, thanks to your spiralizer, which effortlessly and evenly slices bell peppers and onions. Yes, you can use a spiralizer to slice veggies, not just turn them into noodles. Slicing bell peppers and onions can be monotonous, time consuming, and not everyone has the knife skills required to evenly slice these vegetables.

Enter: the Inspiralizer! Once you spiralize a bell pepper or onion, you’ll never hand slice one again. It’s so easy and quick, making fajita night better than ever.

Chicken Fajitas with Spiralized Vegetables

These fajitas are made with a simple homemade fajita seasoning, healthy fats from olive oil, and lean protein from chicken. I make these fajita bowls all the time, but sometimes I make a vegan version, sometimes I use brown rice instead of quinoa, and sometimes I add a pico de gallo or just some jarred salsa, if I want a little more flavor and texture.

What’s great about cooking spiralized bell peppers and onions is that they cook much more quickly than a bell pepper strip, because they’re thinner and they’re all the same width, so you get an even and quick cook. There’s also more vegetable in every bite!

Top with avocado and there you have it, a healthy, quick, and easy weeknight bowl of chicken fajitas!

Nutritional Information & Recipe

Chicken Fajitas with Spiralized Vegetables

Ingredients

  • For the fajita seasoning:
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • For the rest:
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.25-1.5 pounds boneless chicken breasts cut into strips
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 red bell peppers Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 4 green bell peppers Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1 small white or red onion Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • 1 15.5 oz can black beans drained, rinsed
  • 1 large avocado peeled, pitted, cubed or sliced
  • to serve: 1 lime quartered

Instructions

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chicken. Cook for 3 minutes, flip, and cook another 2-3 minutes or until chicken is mostly cooked through.
  • While chicken is cooking, stir together the spices for the fajita seasoning in a small bowl and set aside.
  • To the skillet with the chicken, add in the bell peppers, onions, toss, and season with fajita seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until fork-tender. I like a crunchier bell pepper, so I only cook for about 3 minutes, but if you want a softer pepper, cook for 5 or more minutes.
  • Serve the chicken fajitas with brown rice or quinoa, black beans, and avocado or whatever fixings you’d like. Serve with lime wedges.

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
