Expert Tips

  • This super fast meal lets you cook and prep all at once. Heat the oven while you prep the veggies. Roast the veggies while you prep the chicken. Then roast the chicken while you prep the taco fillings and toppings.
  • For even more fajita flair, serve with Mexican rice, guacamole and Old El Paso™ Thick ‘n Chunky salsa.
  • Mix up the flavors by swapping red bell pepper for green bell pepper (or use a combination), white onion for red or yellow onion or Colby-Monterey Jack cheese for Mexican cheese blend.
