Grilled Spicy Chicken Fajitas

Roasted peppers, onions, jalapenos plus grilled chicken wrapped in flour tortillas equals a tasty spicy chicken fajitas made right at home.

Instead of taco Tuesday, make it a fajita Friday with spicy chicken fajitas. The best part is that instead of going out, you can grill out at home!

You can make fajitas with steak, chicken, pork, shrimp or tofu, so if you’d rather a spicy steak fajita or a spicy tofu fajita (for the vegetarians who love to grill), switch out the chicken. This recipe is forgiving and customizable to your taste. You can switch out the meat, add more jalapenos, exclude the onion or add shredded cheese.

Keep the heat out of the kitchen and on your plate by cooking everything on your SABER® grill. Cook the peppers and onions on the SABER® stainless griddle while the chicken is grilling. Warm up tortillas on the griddle too!
