Recipe: Oven Baked Fajitas with Red Gold Tomatoes

I could probably eat fajitas every day of the week. Usually - steak are my favorite - but I came across a new recipe that I had to try. 

This recipe was for Oven-Baked Fajitas and used chicken. It sounded good and easy - so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I am always looking for ways to keep the chicken juicy and this seemed like it might have found the trick! 

These oven-baked fajitas have all the same ingredients with less work! I used chicken tenders so they would cook faster. You mix up a few spices with oil and top the chicken with the mixture. Coat the chicken. (We'll use those awesome Red Gold Tomatoes in 3...2...1!)

Then you add peppers, a can of Red Gold Tomatoes (I went with the cilantro lime) and a can of black beans. Stir Stir Stir and bake! That's it - how simple is that!?!

Out comes perfectly cooked chicken with all the toppings. I added sour cream and cheese on corn tortillas (my latest kick) and we were good to go. We had dinner as well as lunch for a couple of days - I made tacos, taco salad and quesadillas with the leftovers!
