These chicken fajita lettuce wraps make the perfect mid-week dinner. Ready in less than 30 minutes and so delicious you won’t miss the tortillas!
Chicken fajitas was one of the first meals I cooked Adam when we started dating. I had no idea how to make them and I bought an Old El Paso Fajita Pack and followed the instructions on the box. They were delicious and fast became a favourite of ours. But by the time you add up all the ingredients including the tortilla and sour cream it was a pretty heavy and not so healthy meal.
When we started focusing on healthy eating I was determined to find a way that we could enjoy our fajitas, albeit a more healthy version. I was always skeptical of lettuce wraps. Could lettuce ever really feel like a suitable replacement for carbs? Surely not. Well as it turns out, it can. In fact, I hardly even notice the missing tortilla!
This recipe is pretty flexible. You can totally just buy a pre-made fajita spice mix and use that if you don’t already have all the spices in the cupboard. You can also make your own salsa if you are that way inclined! You can even use this recipe as a base and use tortilla’s if you wish. But I dare you to try it with lettuce! You won’t even realise that you are being healthy 🙂
