The Big 10 Paleo Spiralizer Cookbook 10

Is there anything better than a sizzling platter of fajitas? Chicken fajitas are always my go-to order whenever I’m out somewhere that serves Mexican food it’s easy to customize it to be Paleo without abandoning the main components of the dish. I just ask for fajitas without tortillas, rice, beans, or chees sometimes they’ll even give you a little extra avocado to make up for it. I like to make this chicken fajita skillet and eat it on its own, since it’s full of veggies and meat, but you could also put it over a salad if you have any leftovers.
