I absolutely love fajitas along with everything and anything that has a Mexican flair! These delicious chicken fajitas are made on the grill, so they’re quick and perfect for a busy weeknight or a hot summer evening!  (This recipe works great for beef or steak fajitas too)!  We load them up with cheese, sour cream, lettuce and jalapeños!

I find that cutting the peppers into quarters makes them easy to grill and they won’t slip through.  Once they’re done, I cut them into strips.  For the onion, I cut strips while leaving the root intact and grill it that way.  It cooks through beautifully and there are no little pieces slipping through the grill.
