Healthy Fajita Bowl Recipe
With two picky little kids who are (seemingly) constantly hungry, it can be tough to find quick & easy, budget-friendly meals that everyone likes. What I’ve learned is to start with healthy base ingredients and let everyone customize their dish to their liking.
Next, top the bowls with Mexican-inspired ingredients! We like chopped peppers (the more color, the more nutrients!), pico de gallo, and sour cream. You can swap out sour cream for Greek yogurt to get a protein boost, which is always welcome.
Fajita Toppings Ideas!
- shredded cheese (try different types, like Colby Jack, Sharp Cheddar, or queso fresco)
- fresh pico de gallo
- guacamole (bonus points if it’s homemade!)
- shredded lettuce
- sliced radishes (adds crunch and a slight spicy taste)
- sliced or diced peppers
- sour cream or Greek yogurt
- queso sauce
- enchilada sauce
- hot sauce
- chopped cilantro
Can fajitas be healthy?
It depends on how you cook the protein source (chicken, beef, beans, etc) and which toppings you add, but fajitas can be quite healthy when you grill the meat and add lots of veggies!
How many calories are in a chicken fajita bowl?
About 500-600 calories in a restaurant-style chicken fajita bowl.
Are burrito bowls served hot or cold?
Either! Typically you heat up the meat first and then add cold toppings (such as cheese or lettuce) when ready to serve.
What is the best cut of meat for fajitas?
For steak fajitas, try skirt steak or flank steak (cooked on low heat for enough time to tenderize the meat).
