This is a great basic fajita recipe which can be tweaked to accommodate the whole family. Add some black beans or Spanish rice. Easy to spice up or down. Top each serving with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and spoonfuls of sour cream, taco sauce, and guacamole.

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

Rating: 5 stars 5
I searched high and low for a great chicken fajita recipe that I could make in a slow cooker before I came up with this. The best part for me is that I don't have to defrost the chicken before I throw it in there. Also, this makes a very large batch, so it's good for big families or a crowd of guests.

Homemade Chicken Fajitas

Rating: 5 stars 7
Making homemade fajita seasoning is a lot easier than you might think, and you probably already have the ingredients in your spice cabinet. Simply combine a mixture of chili powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper, and voila, you're ready to make fajitas. Brighten up this dish with a mixture of red, orange, yellow, and green peppers. Top with your favorite garnishes. We use sour cream, pico de gallo, and guacamole.

Cast Iron Chicken Fajitas

Rating: 5 stars 4
Marinating the chicken is an absolute must. Then cooking in a cast iron skillet results in mouth-watering fajitas. Serve with tortillas and your choice of toppings, such as salsa, guacamole or avocado, sour cream, or fresh-squeezed lime juice.

Pollo Fajitas

Rating: 4.5 stars 1247
Chicken thighs are used in this recipe, but boneless, skinless breasts could be used instead. Be careful not to overcook, as the result could be rather dry chicken. Serve with warm flour tortillas, salsa and sour cream.

Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas

Rating: 5 stars 1
Chicken fajitas in the air fryer doesn't get any easier than this. The chicken stays nice and moist while the vegetables have a nice crisp to them. Add 2 minutes of cook time if you prefer softer veggies. I like to toast my tortillas in the air fryer as well but it is not necessary. Serve with toppings of your choice such as salsa, sliced avocado, and cheese.

Chicken Fajita Melts

These cheesy chicken sandwich melts have all of the flavor of fajitas without the drippy mess!
