Chicken Fajitas


This fajita recipe is delicious – and really easy.  To keep it healthy, choose light toppings (like lettuce, tomatoes or any other veggies) – go easy on cheeses and sour cream.  Also be careful when choosing tortillas – try to go with some that are whole grain and low carb, it will save you a lot of calories!
