A friend of mine recommended this oven baked fajitas recipe in one of my challenge groups and, being a family who loves fajitas, I knew I had to give it a try! I sometimes feel like making fajitas can be a pain when cooking everything in a skillet and let me tell you, this is the PERFECT solution! Throw everything in one dish, pop it in the oven and viola!
