Baked Chicken Fajitas

Today is my little boy’s one-year birthday!

I really can’t believe it has been a year.  I know it is cliche to say, but it literally feels like just yesterday I held him in my arms for the first time. We threw him a little party with our families yesterday and just enjoyed celebrating him and how much joy he has brought into our home.  He thoroughly enjoyed his cake and literally ate his entire cupcake all by himself!  Way to go baby Jace!

That smile melts my heart every time :) Happy Birthday, Little buddy!

Today, I have an AMAZING recipe for you.


Believe me when I say it because this is one dish you Mexican Food lovers are going to want to make! I first saw this recipe on Eatin’ on the Cheap and knew I had to make it. My hubby raves every time about how delish the meal is. Not only are the flavors incredible, but this dish is SO EASY!  It is easier than a crock pot meal, same concept… just cooks faster!  Although, I am sure you could make this recipe in the crock pot if you wanted the cooking time to be longer.



Mix all your ingredients in a large bowl.



Dump them in the pan.

Bake and enjoy! Simple right?!

    My husband is latin and I am not. Ever since I made these three weeks ago he asks for them to be on the dinner menu and asolutely loves the seasoning. So easy! I even prep everything the night before which makes dinner super simple after a long day at work.

    I made this tonight and it rocked! My picky 6 year old loved it! I can’t believe how easy it was. I used half the cumin because I am not crazy about cumin and I doubled the garlic (yep, I live on the edge). Keep it coming!

    I made these tonight with garlic powder, salt, half a cup of tomato sauce, green bells, onion and freshly-diced tomatoes, considering that’s all I had on hand. OH! And I used thawed-out chicken tenderloins because that’s all I had, too.

    Served with white rice on white-corn tortillas. YUMMY! Thanks for the recipe. Much easier than stove-top.
