He likes Fajitas ... I like Quesadillas. It's a lot to make both for just the 2 of us so we thought why not try to combine them .. and so the Fajitadilla was born !

We took several recipes from online for Fajitas and also Quesadillas and narrowed them down to what we liked .. the we did the mash up.

And it's really good !

I hope you enjoy our little experiment :)

How to Make Chicken Fajitadillas

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil in a 10" skillet over medium heat.

    Add the onions and bell peppers to the oil and cook - stirring frequently - until tender.

    Sprinkle taco seasoning mix over the cooked onion and pepper and stir to blend.

    Remove from skillet onto a paper towel to drain.
  2. Wipe out the skillet, add oil and heat over medium.

    Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with taco seasoning.

    Add the chicken to the skillet and saute over medium-high heat until done, about 4 minutes per side.

    Check to be sure it has reached 165 inside.

    Remove from the skillet and lay on cutting board. Allow to cool slightly then shred and set aside.
  3. Wipe out skillet then heat over medium heat.

    Melt 1/2 tsp of butter in the skillet.

    Lay a tortilla in the skillet then generously sprinkle on some shredded cheese.

    Top that with some of the onion and pepper blend then sprinkle shredded chicken over top.

    Finally sprinkle a bit more cheese over all and top with another tortilla.

    Check the bottom tortilla to be sure it is browning but not scorching. Carefully flip it over and cook until the bottom is browned and the cheese has melted.
  4. Place them on a baking sheet and pop into a low oven to keep warm while you are finishing the remainder.

    Allow them to sit for a minute or 2 then cut them into wedges.
  5. We like to serve them with some sour cream and salsa used as a dip.

    Garnish with olives, avocado, chives and even some peppers if desired !
