Fajita Casserole

My oh my. Mexican food. I DREAM of Mexican food all day and all night! I’m always excited when I find a recipe that is super healthy AND helps me satisfy my cravings!


4 Chicken Breasts
1 package McCormick Taco Seasoning
3 Bell Peppers (assorted colors), sliced
1 Yellow Onion, Sliced Into Strips
1 Can Black Beans, drained (I love them organic!)
1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
Salsa (I LOVE Jack’s Organic from Costco. AMAZING)
1 recipe of Easy Guacamole (find the recipe HERE)


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Meanwhile, chop your chicken into small cubes. Place chopped chicken in a bowl and combine with taco seasoning. Add onions, bell peppers, and black beans and combine well.

Add a small amount of liquid (like chicken broth or water) to the bottom of a 13X9 pan so that it just covers the bottom of the pan. Add the chicken mixture to the pan, then cover with Cheddar Cheese and Salsa. Cover pan with aluminum foil, shiny side down. Move to the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. After it’s done, top with the guacamole mixture and DIG IN!

As usual, this is an INSANELY easy recipe that only takes a few minutes to prepare. It’s also a recipe you can make in advance and freeze (like I do on my food prep day). If you decide to make in advance and freeze, cook for 2 hours as opposed to 20-30 minutes with thawed chicken breast. You also do not need to add an extra liquid (like water or chicken broth) if you prepare this as a freezer meal.
