chicken fajita tortilla bowl.

Posted by


This is everything good in one bowl.  I love anything fajita or taco related.  In fact, I think if you asked me what my favorite food was… I would have to say TACOS!  So here, I made a whole bunch of deliciousness that’s also super fun to eat in this tortilla bowl!

RECIPE: (serves 4)

  • 6 chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 1 packet fajita skillet sauce (any kind/brand you like)
  • 1 can black olives, drained
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 medium size tomatoes, diced
  • ½ head romaine, chopped
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced thin
  • 2 peppers, sliced thin (I used yellow and orange)
  • 1 avocado, sliced or mashed
  • 4 whole grain tortillas (I used Tumaro’s brand – 60 calories, high fiber, high protein)
  • 1 lime, cut in quarters

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Place chicken thighs in a slow cooker with the fajita skillet sauce
  • Turn slow cooker on the “low” setting and cook for 4-6 hours
  • After chicken is cooked, pull apart with two forks
  • Heat a large pan on medium-high heat
  • Drizzle pan with olive oil and add peppers and onions
  • Cook peppers and onions until brown and caramelized, stirring frequently (about 10 minutes)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Bake tortilla until crispy – I had these little tortilla bowl molds that worked fantastic! But you can use a Pyrex bowl if you have one
  • Fill your tortilla bowl with pulled chicken, black beans, chopped romaine, diced tomatoes, black olives, peppers and onions, and avocado
  • Garnish with a lime slice – Enjoy!
