Keto Chicken Fajita Casserole

We love fajitas at our house, and this is an easy way to enjoy all the flavors without the carbs. I like to serve this with crisp shredded romaine on top. It is also fabulous with my almond flour tortillas if you happen to have them on hand

Equipment

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoon keto taco seasoning or fajita seasoning, divided
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken cut into strips
  • 2 bell pepper seeded and sliced
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened and cubed
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar

Instructions

  • Combine the avocado oil, lime juice, 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning, and salt in a small bowl. Place the chicken in a shallow dish or zip-top bag and pour the marinade over. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring halfway through until browned. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Add the vegetables, and cook until they are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. (You can add additional oil if the pan is too dry.)
  • Add the chicken back to the skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Add cream cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning. Stir until melted.
  • Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Top with cheese and bake for 30 minutes.
