oven baked fajitas seasoning recipe

saw this one a few weeks ago and saved it for a day i knew we would need it.
we’ve made fajitas lots here, but usually just poured in some random seasonings and did it on the grill or on the skillet.

yes, those are very good and you almost can’t beat the flavor of the grilled chicken.

this one was great though because we could just throw it all in and get other things done for a few minutes. and since i was having a {my body hurts and i need to lay down a minute}, cc did this one without me. {i dictated from the couch…}

and, call me crazy, but i really liked the way the veggies stayed a little crunchy.
they still had some veggie flavor since we didn’t cook em to oblivion first.

the seasoning is perfect too- i might just mix up some of the seasoning in a bag to keep for future throw-together meals. so yumtown! even boss man ate up a whole one with a huge silly grin on his face!

oven baked fajitas


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 large bell pepper, seeded and sliced (i use half a green and half a red)
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • whatever you put on your fajitas

what to do

preheat the oven to 400 degrees. place chicken strips in a greased 13×9 baking dish. in a small bowl, combine the oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried oregano, and salt. drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and stir to coat. next add the tomatoes, peppers, and onions to the dish and stir to combine. bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. serve on tortillas with desired toppings. we use ranch and tapatillo at very least. so naughty.
