If there’s a favorite at our house, it’s got to be Mexican-style food. I’ll make tacos or fajitas at least once a week and the family isn’t complaining. For these Sheet Pan Adobo Chicken Fajitas, I found the best way is to lay out the toppings like cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, jalapeno slices and lime so everyone can build-their-own. There’s no better way to avoid a dinnertime meltdown for finicky eaters!

Quick Tips!

Cut your veggies into same-sized pieces for even cooking.

Slice thick chicken breasts in half lengthwise before cooking. This gives you a thinner piece that will cook faster. You can buy chicken cutlets where this is already done for you.

Use a large rimmed sheet pan, or two smaller ones so the meat and vegetables are not over-crowded.

While the meat and vegetables are cooking, set out and cut up any toppings so you’re ready to go when the meat comes sizzling out of the oven. Warm the tortillas right before serving.

What is Adobo Sauce?

This delicious, smoky sweet sauce should be in the kitchen of every cook who loves to make Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes. It’s amazing for flavoring meats and adding a little fire to meats for fajitas, burritos and tacos to chilis, soups and rice dishes.It’s mainly known for the sauce that’s poured over chipotle peppers.

It’s a tangy, sweet red sauce made from chili powder, vinegar, sugar and spices. You can easily make your own with our Adobo Sauce recipe, buy it ready made (you may need buy the Adobo Sauce online or visit a Mexican market) or find it in the can with chipotle peppers.
