1 small onion (sliced)
1 recipe or package of fajita seasoning mix

How to make Chicken Fajita Casserole
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium and saute the chicken until done. Set the chicken aside when done.
Step 3: In the now-empty skillet, add the onions and peppers. Saute until softened.
Step 4: Return the chicken to the skillet, then add the taco seasoning, sour cream, and cream cheese. Stir well.
Step 5: On top, sprinkle the cheese.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is bubbly.
To save time, use pre-cooked chicken (about 5 to 6 c.).
In this recipe, use 1 recipe of healthy homemade Taco Seasoning Mix, Fajita Seasoning Mix, or 1 store-bought packet.
Serve the casserole topped with avocado, guacamole, sour cream, or salsa.
You can just transfer everything to a greased casserole dish if you do not have an oven-proof skillet.
