Chicken Fajita Bowls with Guacamole


Total Time:



It’s Thursday and I’m ready to rock and roll. Get ready for some Chicken Fajita Bowls!

Chicken Fajita Bowls with Guacamole from (@whatsgabycookin)

I’ll eat fajitas every which way whether it’s at home or at a restaurant. I’ll eat chicken fajitas, steak fajitas, shrimp fajitas, fajita quesadillas… you name it. And the fact that I don’t have a fajita quesadilla on this site is completely unacceptable and needs to be remedied immediately.

Today it’s all about Chicken Fajita Bowls with steamed white rice (or cauliflower rice if you’re keeping it clean this time of year), black beans, charred corn, pico, guacamole and more! It’s perfect. Everything you’ve ever wanted. The poblano peppers in there will 100% seal the deal. And best part about it… you serve it in a bowl. Which if you’re new here, is my all time favorite way to eat anything. Bowls all day, every day.

And you guys… the chicken is this is juicy and succulent and you’re going to be so happy when you make it. The marinade has everything you could want and all the flavor is seared in when you sauté it all together.
