Shrimp Fajita Bowls
Freezing the shrimp, onions, peppers, and seasonings in the same ziplock bag not only makes this fajita dish come together faster, it also acts as a marinade, intensifying the flavor. To maximize freezer space, lay the prepared bags flat in a single layer in the freezer; when frozen, stack bags to save room.
Easy Steak Fajitas
Let everyone customize their fajitas by setting out an assortment of toppings such as fresh cilantro, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. Pick up a container of freshly sliced onions and bell peppers at the grocery store to save time (and tears) when preparing the fajitas. We prefer fresh over frozen vegetables in this recipe; they stay firmer when cooked.
Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas
This easy dinner comes together in less time than it takes to wait for a table at your favorite Mexican restaurant. Mild poblano chiles and bell peppers get a nice char under the broiler and deliver more than double a day’s worth of immunity-boosting vitamin C.
Easy Chicken Fajitas
Make chicken fajitas a go-to weeknight dish. Our easy chicken fajitas recipe—which calls for fewer than 10 ingredients and comes together in just 20 minutes—is perfect for kids and adults alike.
Instant Pot Keto Chicken Fajita Bowls
This keto-approved take on fajitas is a super satisfying low-carb meal. The chicken shreds off the bone easily, while the veggies have a slight crunch and the broth is light and flavorful. It feels indulgent, but you’re not breaking any rules.
Quick Chicken Fajitas
Looking to update your classic chicken fajita recipe? These quick and easy chicken fajitas are perfect for a casual, fun get-together. The recipe serves 4, but you can easily double it to feed a larger crowd.
Steak Fajita Chili
Make this staff-favorite one of your go-to dutch-oven dinners this fall. Tougher cuts of meat, like chuck-eye turn meltingly soft, root vegetables make the stew rich and hearty, and a dollop of greek yogurt adds just the right amount of tang, to cut through the rich sauce and brighten the meal.
Slow Cooker Beef Fajitas
Start these easy slow cooker fajitas when you get home and they'll be ready by dinner time. There's no hassle, no rush, and most importantly, no mess!
Skillet Fajita Pitas
Cooking over high heat without stirring gives the chicken and peppers a smoky, charred crust.
Fajita Panzanella Salad
This hearty salad combines everything we love about classic fajitas—seared steak, sautéed bell peppers, and salsa—with panzanella, a Tuscan bread salad. The toasted bread cubes soak up the vinaigrette and bring the dish together. If you can’t find mini bell peppers, cut one large orange and one large red bell pepper into strips.

Classic Tex-Mex Chicken fajitas are a festive and flavorful main for easy weeknight dinners. Divide up the ingredients and all the toppings for a build-your-own, DIY fajita bar party at home: simply set out the rotisserie chicken, fresh and vibrant veggies, and assorted optional toppings. Serve with rice and beans. Pro tip: To save even more time in the kitchen, try picking up a store-bought rotisserie chicken; it offers the flavor without all of the hassle.
Cheesy Chicken Fajitas
Chicken taco meets 7-layer dip in this fiesta of a skillet supper. You can swap in black beans or kidney beans for the pintos. For extra zest, serve with cilantro and lime wedges. Savor all the flavors of Taco Tuesday without any of the guilt. You can easily make vegetarian fajitas by removing the chicken and adding sliced zucchini, diced carrots and potatoes. Convert taco night into a buffet taco bar and let everyone build their own fajita.
