Chicken Fajitas with Creamy Guacamole & a Simple Salsa

Mexican Food - Fajitas

My family love our fajitas nights! The kids love to fill their own tortilla wraps and because I make everything from scratch, I can adjust how spicy to make the fajitas so the whole family can enjoy them together.

If you read my blog you will know that I love eating healthy and clean and when it comes to family favourite foods I like to create my own healthier versions. Over the past couple of years I have worked to get the balance of spices just right for this recipe and now it is perfect I want to share it with you all.

In the recipes below I have also included the perfect sides to accompany and complete a fajitas night, especially if you are entertaining. From my homemade creamy guacamole and to my simple salsa, the whole meal is easy and quick and can all be created in under one hour.

These recipes are all healthy, using fresh ingredients and can be prepared in advance and stored in the refrigerator. This meal is perfect for hosting guests for a dinner/ late lunch as the recipe can be doubled or tripled to serve more mouths.
