Grilled Chicken Fajita Bowl with Cilantro Lime Rice
Fajitas are one of my favorite dishes! In college I used to make them for snack after a long day at school. Unfortunately, since our family has pretty much eliminated wheat–dad and the two older boys can’t eat it–I haven’t indulged in fajitas much lately. They just aren’t the same with store-bought corn tortillas. I know, I need to get a tortilla press so I can make my own delicious wheat-free corn tortillas, but until that day…
Each month a group of blogging friends and I remake one of our favorite pins. Last month I posted my favorite Detox Body Scrub that I’ve been using for the past 6 months and LOVE!
This month I thought a food remake would be perfect for the grilling season. This Easy Chicken Fajitas Recipe pin is very similar to how I make fajitas. Though the author sounds like she might be a bit more pro with the prep than I am.
To offer my family a wheat-free option, I thought, what an easy substitute rice would be! Cilantro lime rice always pairs well with fajita seasoned meat!
Pair the cilantro lime rice with the fajita fixins and you have Grilled Chicken Fajita Bowls with Cilantro Lime Rice! Sounds delish, doesn’t it?!
Don’t be turned off by the number of ingredients on the list. I’m willing to bet you already have most of these in your spice cupboard. If not, it is time to make a little investment. These spices are super versatile and having them on hand will allow you to quit buying those spice packets with all the unnecessary additives.
