Chicken Fajita Skillet Quinoa Bake

Chicken Fajita Skillet Quinoa Bake

A very wise man (aka my best friend Matt) said that you cannot live your best life without guacamole. And I’m 100% on board with that. But also you really can’t live your best life without salsa, cheese and fajitas so in honor of that…. let’s make a Chicken Fajita Skillet Quinoa Bake!

You guys know how much I love eating out of a bowl right? So much so that there is an entire section in my upcoming cookbook dedicated to bowls. I have similar feelings about cooking everything in a big ‘ol skillet and serving it straight outta the pan. It makes things easy and that’s exactly what this Chicken Fajita Skillet Quinoa Bake is!
