weeknight dinners can be hard, it’s tough sometimes to muster up the energy to cook something after a long day. we all want to be those people who are making something delicious and trying out new recipes but that’s not always possible. enter the fajitas, cut up whatever vegetables you have in the fridge, add a protein (chicken, steak, beans, tofu), toss it all in your cast iron and you’re good to go with zero worry about messing this “recipe” up. because it’s actually barely a recipe, it’s more of an idea that you can add and subtract from as needed. we purchased everything we needed for this recipe at trader joe’s. their onion salt in particular is very good as is there prepackaged cauliflower rice and corn tortillas. – joanie

how to make:

• i recently learned about this new chicken cooking technique from  which if you aren’t following yet, you should be. they have great recipe ideas and tips. to cook the chicken, take a cold cast iron pan, without any oil and put your chicken skin side down on the pan and place it over low heat and let it cook, about 5-7 minutes per side without moving it. this will give it a nice browned outside. flip it over and do the same thing to the other side. you may need more time depending on the thickness of your chicken. remove chicken, set aside, covered.

• cut the bell peppers into strips and thinly slice the red onion. add to the same heated cast iron with some olive oil and cook for an additional 10-20 minutes, i like my vegetables to get really cooked down and browned but you can cook for as long or short as you’d like. stirring occasionally. salt to taste.

• in a separate pan heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat. add the cauliflower rice and season the salt and garlic salt to taste. stirring every other minute until cauliflower rice is tender; about 5-7 minutes. remove from heat and mix with 1/2 lime and 1 cup chopped cilantro.

    I LOVE fajitas, and you’re right they’re super easy and barely a recipes. Just stick everything in a tortilla and eat – Haha! I’ll have to try the cauliflower bits again, I bought them once and really messed it up, but this is a much better substitute than rice.
