My homemade fajitas, made with chicken, are all dressed up with guacamole and hot sauce on a warm corn tortilla. 

This fajitas recipe is the perfect party food. Suitable for chicken or beef, the recipe begins with my easy fajita marinade. Serve the fajitas with plenty of warm corn tortillas and some of my homemade guacamole. If you’re feeling daring, my homemade habanero hot sauce tastes great on this! Otherwise regular homemade salsa or avocado salsa will do.

What I love most about this recipe for Fajitas is its versatility. I usually make up a big batch of the marinade and freeze any leftovers for another fajitas night. After marinating the chicken or steak, you’ll grill it quickly outside, then come inside to finish it off. I like to sauté everything in a pan with fresh sliced bell peppers and onions. Then, just let everyone grab a warm tortilla and put on their favorite toppings!
