KID FRIENDLY CHICKEN FAJITA BOWL

My kids love the flavors of almost any Mexican or Mexican inspired dish. Even the spicy stuff! But at two and four, the presentation of fajitas is pretty intimidating. Especially the big, hot platter they’re usually served on! They often end up just gorging themselves on tortillas and don’t get much meat or veggies.

So I decided to use our favorite homemade fajita sauce to make a chicken fajita bowl with rice that’s a little more kid friendly. The kids even got to help make it!

They mixed together the fajita sauce, while I cooked up some chopped chicken in a pan on the stove. Then we stirred in the sauce and peppers, sprinkled it with cilantro, and served it over hot rice.

If you don’t want to make homemade fajita sauce, you could always use a packaged spice mix, but we like the homemade version better! You can also include any other ingredients you might like with your fajitas. Maybe add some shredded cheese, or a bit of avocado. Just keep in mind that anything you add will change the nutrition info.
