Chicken Fajita Burgers – Simplest recipe ever!

There are times when you really want to eat something special and different yet you don’t wanna spend too much time in kitchen hence the dilemma. For me, these times happen almost all the time ( yea, I am exaggerating a little… lol) and this leads me to google in search for different effortless and expeditious recipes. The one I am about to share today is one of such kinds, I stumbled upon this one by Delish while scrolling my Facebook news feed one day and I decided to keep it in my To-Try list immediately.  I am so glad I did because it turned out to be super scrumptious, HI ended up asking for more as soon as he finished one (he usually eats one).

Ideal to serve these as a meal to kids who love to eat burgers over everything else. These will compliment your hi-tea menu as well. Try it and enjoy it 🙂


About Chicken Fajita: The word fajita is derived from Tex-Mex cuisine commonly referring to any grilled meat. It is usually cooked with onions and bell peppers topped with cheese and other seasonings which in turn make it irresistible.
The history of fajita dates back to 1930s in the ranch lands of South and West Texas. Many times, the fajita meat is brought to the table sizzling loudly on a metal platter with the tortillas and condiments.
