20 Minute Sheet Pan Fajitas

You might be surprised on how easy it is to make these sheet pan fajitas. Slice,season and bake! Literally, that’s it. You can enjoy the sound of them sizzling while they bake and you will have a full meal plus leftovers (maybe) within 20 minutes! During that 20 minutes you can also prepare all of your favorite fixings or salad toppings and warm your tortilla‘s! So, by the time your sheet pan fajitas are ready to serve hot and right out of the oven, everything else will be done as well and those hungry tummies will be filled in no time!

The thing I love about this meal is that it is both healthy and filling. It is packed with protein, the good kind of fats, vegetables and the option to keep the carbs in or cut them out. It covers some of main nutritional aspects.

Some of our favorite fixings in our household include:

  • Shredded lettuce
  • Diced tomato
  • Sliced avocado
  • RightRice from Whole Foods
  • Sour Cream
  • Refried beans
  • Lime wedges
  • Cilantro Leaves

You can customize and include your favorite fixings to your liking and no matter how you customize them these are guaranteed to be a hit!
