Sheet Pan Fajitas and Simple Guacamole

Well, hello! Regan here :) It's been a while since we've posted a recipe (or anything for that matter...whoops!).  Please forgive us!  

Today I'm sharing our sheet pan fajita recipe.  It's one of my favorite recipes because it's quick, easy, delicious and healthy!  My four favorite things in a recipe!  These fajitas are made in the oven and everything cooks together in one pan...genius!

Here are the simple step by step directions.  Scroll to the bottom for the full printable recipe!



Start by cutting up your peppers and onion.  Then thinly slice some chicken breasts. 



Then in a small bowl, stir together some olive oil and your spices!



Add your chicken and veggies to a bowl, then toss all together with the oil and spices mixture. 



Spread out evenly on a sheet pan, and throw it in the oven. 



While it's cooking, make your guacamole and prepare your toppings for the fajitas.  

This guacamole recipe (if you'd even call it that) is mine and my husband's go-to whenever we have company over (because who doesn't love quac, right??).  We always get compliments and it's literally the easiest to make.  



All you do is mash up your avocados, add a few spoonfuls of your favorite salsa, sprinkle over some garlic salt and a little pepper, and squeeze in a little lemon juice.  There aren't any measurements, so you kind of just have to keep tasting it until it's right.  

We recently discovered this salsa from Costco...and it's a game changer.  We've been using this as the salsa for the guacamole, and it's seriously SO good.  My brothers were over the other day and said it was the best guac they've ever had.  Exaggeration?  I don't think so ;)




After about 25 minutes, your chicken and veggies should be cooked through and smelling delicious.  



Serve with guacamole, sour cream, cilantro, cheese, and whatever other toppings you want.



And indulge...without feeling guilty because it's heathy!



Side note...I found these whole wheat tortillas at the store, and they were perfect for these fajitas!  Full recipe below.  Enjoy!
